I calculated the temperature advection for the middle of Puerto  Rico  for 12Z today.  The wind is at about 2.5 m/s and I multiplied that by the change in temperature and divided that by the distance between the isobars in the direction of the wind.  My calculated value was -4.3 e -5 degree C/ seconds.  The 2nd map shows the actual temperature advection. Therefore my calculated value is pretty close.
