50% rains during labor wknd...

Does it rain in PR for short period of times? Several time a day?

That is the typical situation most of the year. September is the peak of the hurricane season. This year has been lucky with very few tropical storms in the Atlantic. However, a tropical storm can occur which means rain for a day or two.

"Does it rain in PR for short period of times?"

Normally, yes.

"Several time a day?"


However, these answers only apply to non-hurricane season. As mentioned above, September is the peak of the hurricane season. It rains more often, and the showers can take hours, even days depending on how close to the island a storm is. During hurricane season, the weather is very unpredictable.

I would not put too much stock in a weather forecast this far out as forecasters cannot accurately predict weather a week or more in advance. I looked at the forecast for San Juan, Rincon and Ponce and they are all different for the Labor Day weekend. Labor day shows a 20% chance of rain. The fact is that 50% rain does not mean a washout, just that there is a chance of showers somewhere often on and off with the sun in between. Elsewhere on the island ii is often sunny unless a massive storm system hovers over the island.
