DISCUSSION: As several weak pulses of energy continue to move along and past the southern parts of Puerto Rico. In the wake of these pulses of energy have come scattered convective cells which have produced heavy downpours and brief wind gusts up to 40-50 MPH at times within some of the stronger downdrafts! Though this is quite typical of the Caribbean for there to be two daily maximums in tropical convective activity (i.e., one in the morning as the sun begins to rise above the horizon and heat up the lowest parts of the atmosphere and one just after the maximum heating of the day when the most energy tends to be present within the atmosphere). As observed throughout the day today, there were actually several rounds of heavy showers with a few embedded thunderstorms which propagated across several parts of Puerto Rico!
