National Weather Service warns of hot days ahead

By The Star Staff

The National Weather Service (NWS) warned Wednesday that exceedingly hot days would continue into the weekend with heat ratings between 100° and 107° Fahrenheit.

The NWS also warned that heat exhaustion can lead to heat stroke and advised on measures to take if someone becomes overheated.

“Move the person to a cooler place, change to more comfortable clothes,” the NWS said. “Apply ice or cool water and seat the person in a cool area. Visit the emergency room if the symptoms persist.”

Hot conditions are expected to continue for the rest of the week and into the weekend.

An east-southeast wind is forecast to bring additional downpours across Puerto Rico’s windward areas during the day, followed by afternoon convection due to sea breezes and daytime warming in the central and western interior regions.

This weather pattern will generate intense heat conditions into the weekend, especially in urban and coastal areas, with heat indices between 100 and 107 degrees Fahrenheit. Maximum temperatures will reach 90 degrees in urban and coastal areas.

As for sea conditions, boaters can expect a swell of 2 to 4 feet in the Atlantic and lower in the rest of the local waters in the coming days. The wind will blow from east to southeast at speeds of 10 to 15 knots.
