The National Meteorological Service (SNM) predicted this Monday a calm day of light rains, although it reiterated its warnings due to the dangerous maritime conditions experienced by the island.
According to the meteorologist Mariangelis Marrero Colonon this Monday morning an alert remained active for high risk of ocean currents for the west, north and east coasts of Puerto Rico, including the islands of Vieques and Culebra.
“We also have a warning for small boat operators. This includes the waters north of Puerto Rico, the Mona Passage and also Vieques and Culebra.reported the meteorologist.
On the other hand, Marrero Colon detailed that the offshore waves would be fluctuating between eight to 10 feet, occasionally rising up to 11 feet.
“We also have a high surf warning that will be in effect until 6:00 pm on Tuesday, so all people who will be carrying out activities in the beach area, especially on the west, north and “East of Puerto Rico, like the island of Culebra, should be monitoring maritime conditions”he explained.
It is expected that between late tonight and tomorrow, Tuesday, the wind direction will change to the southeast, thus causing “warmer temperatures.”
“It does not mean that they are going to be well above normal,” clarified Marrero Colon.
