Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands...CORRECTED
National Weather Service San Juan PR
837 AM AST WED AUG 31 2016

Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies were observed across the local
islands during the overnight hours. Only a few showers were detected
across the coastal waters...however little or no rainfall was
noted over land. Minimum temperatures were around 80 degrees at
coastal locations. The wind was mainly from the east at less than
10 MPH.

A generally dry weather pattern will continue for most of the
week. The presence of Saharan dust and the high pressure building
across the region will continue inhibit and limit shower
development across the islands and coastal waters through at
least Thursday. However...local and diurnal effects may still lead
to some isolated showers mainly on the windward side of the
islands. Local winds are to become more easterly as the surface
high pressure is to build north of the region at least until
Thursday, when a weak tropical wave is expected to move across or
just south of the local region. This should increase the chance
for early morning and afternoon shower activity across the
islands.

Across the coastal waters...seas up to 5 feet and winds around 20 knots
are expected today. For the beach goers, there is a moderate risk
of rip currents along some of the beaches of the Atlantic Coast.
