The remnants of a cold front and a trough north of Puerto Rico will bring passing rains this Tuesday morning, although drier weather is expected for the island in the afternoon.
According to the meteorologist Rosalina Vazquez, from the National Meteorological Service (SNM), some shower activity has already been felt during the morning, “mostly in the north and east of the island. Late in the afternoon, we expect the pattern to change to a drier one.”.
“We may have some particulate matter from Saharan dust and we expect this to contribute to the temperatures, but we do not expect high heat indices at the moment. Therefore there are no warnings or heat advisories”Vazquez reported.
The cool temperatures that will be experienced are due to the cloudiness over the island, as well as the direction of the winds that affect Puerto Rico. At the moment, the winds on the island come from the north, which drives the effects of the trough and the cold front.
On the other hand, Vazquez warned that there is currently a moderate risk of marine currents “mostly on the northern coast of Puerto Rico.”
“Tomorrow, conditions could deteriorate with waves of six to eight feet, mostly on the north coast, and also a high risk of ocean currents,” the meteorologist said.
