This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for Puerto Rico and the adjacent
Atlantic Coastal Waters.

.Day One...Today and Tonight

.Thunderstorms...There is a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms
with moderate to heavy rainfall and brief gusty winds this afternoon
across portions of western Puerto Rico.

.Flooding...Heavy rains could lead to minor urban and small stream
flooding or ponding of water on roadways and in poor drainage areas.

.Waves...Choppy seas up to 6 feet expected across the offshore
Atlantic waters and the Anegada passage.

.Rip Currents...There is a moderate rip current risk for the beaches
along the north, and some in the southeast coasts of Puerto Rico, as
well as the eastern and southern beaches of Vieques and Culebra.

.Heat...Heat index values may be between 100 and 105 degrees across
the lower elevations in eastern Puerto Rico.

.Days Two through Seven...Sunday through Friday

Seas will remain choppy especially over the Atlantic and Anegada
passage through at least Tuesday due to winds and the effects of
distant Tropical Storm Josephine. There will also be a moderate
risk of rip currents for several beaches during the next several
days. The outer bands of Tropical Storm Josephine still forecast
to pass well to our north of the area through Sunday, may bring
periods of showers and thunderstorms to the local area through
Monday. Therefore minor urban and small stream flooding in isolated
areas or ponding of water on roadways and in poor drainage areas,
will remain possible through at least Monday.

.Spotter information statement...

Spotter activation is not anticipated. Please relay any information
about winds, waves, and rip currents to the National Weather Service
in San Juan while following all local and state guidelines.
