Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
509 PM AST Tue Jan 24 2017
Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies were observed across the
U.S. Virgin Islands today. The maximum temperatures were in the
mid 80s and the winds were from the South at 5 to 15 mph.
As a mid level ridge holds across the forecast area, a generally
fair and mainly stable weather pattern will continue to prevail
with a few passing showers possible. However, the ridge will
continue to erode tonight and early Wednesday as a broad mid to
upper level trough with its associated surface boundary moves
north of the area. This may result in moisture advection early
Wednesday. Therefore, continue to expect fair weather conditions
much of this week with a slightly increase in shower activity
overnight and into early Wednesday.
Tranquil marine conditions expected to continue, however a
northerly swell is expected to reach the local region by Wednesday
afternoon. This will bring hazardous seas to the local Atlantic
Water and Caribbean Passages. For the beach goers, there is a low
to moderate risk of rip current. However, the risk is expected
high for St Thomas by Wednesday morning.
