The low-pressure weather system that passed through Puerto Rico over the past several days produced less precipitation than expected, with no extensive flooding or significant wind damage reported, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).
The most significant rainfall yesterday was in Caguas, where between two and six inches of rainfall was reported, according to NWS forecaster Manuel Rodríguez.
The only incidents of wind damage were reported, in Manatí, where a single tree was felled by wind, and in the town of Florida, where a tree broke off at the trunk and blocked a rural road.
Shower activity continued in parts of the island on Thursday as the deep-layer trough moved away from the region.
A gradual drying trend from west to east was expected to continue into the weekend, resulting in more stable weather conditions. However, shallow moisture may result in light isolated shower activity.
Meanwhile, northerly swells arriving over the next several days will further deteriorate marine and coastal conditions for the Atlantic waters and local passages through early next week.
