He National Meteorological Service (SNM) in San Juan anticipated that this afternoon will again have a long day of downpours caused by a trough in high levels of the atmosphere, although they will not be as significant as yesterday.
Meteorologist Lee Ann Inglés Serrano explained the opposite yesterday, today there is less humidity, so the weather forecast suggests that the downpours will result from the usual combination of daytime heat and humidity in the environment.
“Today less rain is expected than yesterday, because there is less humidity throughout the area. But, the humidity will be enough to produce some isolated thunderstorms in various sectors of the island “, highlighted the expert in an interview with The new day.
He added that the wind flow changed and is now blowing from the east-northeast, which means that the rain activity in the afternoon is expected to be concentrated in towns in the south, southwest and interior of the island.
“The rest of the island could see some isolated showers, but not significant due to the flow of the wind”mentioned the meteorologist.
However, the meteorological agency established in its weather perspective that several parts of the island are under low risk of urban floods and small streams, while others have a moderate risk, such as, for example, sectors of the southwest, interior and east of the island.
“It is possible that some floods will be generated because the soils are already saturated. In addition, in areas with little drainage, such as roads, there may also be accumulations of water, so we urge citizens to exercise caution, ”said Inglés Serrano.
According to the forecast, the rain should start from noon when the local effects begin to combine.
However, until then, temperatures will be between normal for much of the island, but others experience high sensations of heat, according to the SNM.
The meteorological agency reported that several sectors in the east and the metropolitan area have low risk of heat, which means that they could experience indexes that are between 102 and 107 degrees Fahrenheit.
Meanwhile, Inglés Serrano pointed out that maritime conditions will remain calm, at least, for today with waves of five feet or less for all local waters and a moderate risk of currents for the north coast of Puerto Rico.
