Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
400 PM AST Fri Apr 28 2017
Variable cloudy skies prevailed across the U.S. Virgin Islands and
the surrounding coastal waters this afternoon. Doppler radar
indicated scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms mostly
across the surrounding coastal waters with few showers affecting
the local islands from time to time. Temperatures ranged from the
upper 70s to the lower 80s and wind was mostly from the east at 10
to 15 mph with some higher gusts.
Showers will continue to affect the region overnight. Similar
weather conditions are expected to continue across the local
islands through the rest of the weekend with passing showers at
times. The chance of showers with isolated thunderstorms will
increase Saturday and Sunday as a trough aloft establishes north
of the area.
Mariners can expect seas up to 6 feet across the regional waters
and local passages with easterly winds between 15 and 20 knots.
Therefore, mariners should exercise caution across most of the
regional waters. There is a moderate risk of rip currents across
most of the local beaches, except for the west coastline.
