A drier air mass will continue to move into the area today, however, one or two afternoon showers may occur. Any showers that do develop will be short-lived, and should produce only light rainfall amounts. Southerly winds will cause an increase in daytime high temperatures today. By late Wednesday, a wetter weather pattern is forecast as a cold front moves over Puerto Rico and increases the potential for shower development.

Hazardous marine conditions exists as a result of a subsiding northerly swell and wind-driven waves. Marine conditions should improve by mid-week.
