NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR  
419 PM AST SAT APR 17 2021  
 
DRY CONDITIONS ALONG WITH HAZY SKIES DUE TO THE PRESENCE OF  
SUSPENDED SAHARAN DUST PARTICULATES PREVAILED ACROSS THE LOCAL  
AREA THROUGHOUT THE DAY. HIGH TEMPERATURES TOPPED OUT IN THE  
MIDDLE 80S. WINDS WERE FROM THE SOUTHEAST BETWEEN 10 AND 15 MPH.  
 
TRANQUIL WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO PREVAIL TONIGHT  
THROUGH SUNDAY AS THE COMBINATION OF A DRIER THAN NORMAL AIR MASS  
AND THE PRESENCE OF THE SUSPENDED SAHARAN DUST PARTICULATES WILL  
LIMIT SHOWER DEVELOPMENT. OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO  
DROP INTO MIDDLE TO UPPER 70S.  
 
ACROSS THE LOCAL WATERS, A NORTHERLY SWELL WILL CONTINUE TO  
CREATE CHOPPY SEAS OF UP TO 6 FEET OVER PORTIONS OF THE OFFSHORE  
ATLANTIC WATERS THROUGH TONIGHT. SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS ARE URGED  
TO EXERCISE CAUTION. ELSEWHERE, SEAS UP TO 5 FEET AND WINDS UP TO  
15 KNOTS ARE EXPECTED. THERE IS A MODERATE RIP CURRENT RISK FOR
