Weather conditions will be variable for this Sunday, with some rain and cloud activity during the day predicted by the National Meteorological Service (SNM).
According to the meteorologist of that agency Mariangelis Marrero, the rain will not be significant. “However, during the afternoon hours it is expected that this activity will be concentrated throughout the interior and northwest of Puerto Rico,” he indicated.
The SNM also warned that the temperatures would be high during the day, especially for the island’s coastal towns.
However, Marrero explained that Although they would be warm, it does not mean that they would rise above the conditions of the winter season..
“On the coast it is expected to fluctuate around 87 degrees Fahrenheit”said the meteorologist.
On the other hand, Marrero urged caution among small boat operators, especially in Atlantic waters.
“The swell on Sunday will be four to six feet, with easterly winds of 10 to 15 knots and they are expected to continue like this until at least Monday. “Across the Caribbean waters, we are going to have two to four foot swells with easterly winds of 10 to 15 knots.”he reported.
Starting this afternoon, an alert will be issued for a high risk of marine currents for the north and east coast of Puerto Rico, including the island of Culebra.
“This means that we are going to have stronger waves near coastal areas and the wind is going to increase as well,” the meteorologist added.
