Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
451 PM AST Tue Jan 16 2018

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies prevailed across the islands during
the afternoon. Some afternoon showers developed over the coastal waters,
and over the island of Saint Thomas producing brief periods of moderate
to locally heavy rainfall. Daytime high temperatures were in the low
to mid 80s along coastal areas. Winds were generally from the east
at 10 to 15 mp with occasionally higher gusts.

The persistent moderate easterly trade winds are expected to continue
to transport occasional patches of low level moisture across the region
for the next few days. This will again lead to periods of early morning
passing showers mainly on the windward side of the islands, followed
by a slight chance of isolated showers during the afternoon hours. Light
to moderate easterly trade winds between 10 to 15 mph can be expected
during the next couple of days.

Across the regional waters, hazardous seas are expected to continue
mainly across most of the local waters and passages with seas of 5-7
feet and winds up to 15 knots with occasionally higher gusts. Therefore,
small craft advisories continue in effect. A high risk of rip currents
continues in effect for most of the beaches of Saint Croix.
