A stable and sunny day is expected in Puerto Rico


During the night, the weather was generally stable in most of Puerto Rico under sunny skies. However, Doppler radar detected downpour activity in small areas of southeastern Puerto Rico, which left about a quarter of an inch of rain in some areas of Humacao and Yabucoa.

The lows were in the mid 70s at high elevations and in the mid 60s to low 70s at high elevations. The wind was light and variable.

Stable and sunny weather is expected this morning over Puerto Rico as dry air has moved. Available moisture must combine with local effects to produce downpours in the west, but the probability of rain is low in the rest of the area.

We recommend you:

Highs will be in the mid to high 80s at low elevations and in the high 70s to low 80s at low elevations. Wind will be out of the east around 15 mph with occasional gusts.

Choppy and dangerous surf is expected today. Waves of 5 to 7 feet and winds of 15 to 20 knots are forecast in the offshore Atlantic waters, where a Warning for Small Boat Operators remains in effect. Swells of 3 to 6 feet are forecast in the remaining waters and small boat operators should exercise caution.

There is a high risk of ocean currents in effect for the beaches of northern Puerto Rico and moderate risk in other areas.
