According to the National Weather Service, SJU the doppler radar detected showers across the surrounding waters and some of them moved inland. This activity was more frequent north of the Virgin Islands, but without any significant rainfall accumulation. Minimum coastal temperatures were in the high 70s and low 80s. Winds prevailed from the east at less than 10 mph, except for occasionally higher gusts in and near shower activity.
Today, abundant moisture associated with a tropical wave will result in passing morning showers. This moisture along with the local effect and daytime heating should increase the frequency and intensity of showers and maybe a few thunderstorms are possible during the afternoon hours.
Across the regional waters…tranquil marine conditions with seas at 3 to 5 feet with occasional seas up to 6 feet and winds at 10 to 15 knots are forecast today.
