435 AM AST THU APR 17 2014

SKIES WERE PARTLY CLOUDY OVER THE LOCAL ISLANDS AND SURROUNDING
WATERS DURING THE OVERNIGHT AND EARLY MORNING HOURS. SCATTERED
SHOWERS WERE OBSERVED ACROSS MUCH OF THE LOCAL WATERS AND ALONG
THE NORTH AND EAST SECTIONS OF PUERTO RICO. THE DOPPLER RADAR
ESTIMATED RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF AROUND A QUARTER OF AN INCH OF RAIN
OVER THE YUNQUE RAIN FOREST. TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE 70S ALONG
THE COASTAL AREAS. WINDS WERE MAINLY FROM THE EAST AT LESS THAN 10
MPH.

AN UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WILL BUILD OVER THE REGION
THROUGH THURSDAY AND HOLD THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. IN ADDITION...
SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD NORTH OF THE AREA
THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. THIS SCENARIO WILL CAUSE THE LOCAL
PRESSURE GRADIENT TO TIGHTEN AND LEAD TO AN INCREASE IN THE EASTERLY
TRADE WINDS THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. BETTER MOISTURE TRANSPORT
CAN BE EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS...THEREFORE EARLY MORNING
PASSING SHOWERS WILL AFFECT MAINLY THE EAST COASTAL SECTIONS OF
THE ISLANDS. THIS COMBINED WITH DIURNAL HEATING AND SEA BREEZE
CONVERGENCE WILL LEAD TO AFTERNOON SHOWER DEVELOPMENT EACH DAY
PARTICULARLY ACROSS PARTS OF THE INTERIOR SECTIONS OF THE ISLAND.

ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS...EASTERLY WINDS UP TO 20 KNOTS AND SEAS
UP TO 7 FEET ARE EXPECTED TODAY. SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES WILL BE IN
EFFECT LATER TODAY FOR MOST OF THE LOCAL WATERS.
