Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
459 AM AST Tue Feb 21 2017

Partly to mostly cloudy skies prevail across the Virgin Islands
during the overnight hours. Doppler radar detected numerous showers
over the Atlantic Waters. Scattered showers over Northern Virgin
Islands. Rainfall accumulations over land were minimal. The wind
over land was light and variable.

Trough aloft moving across the region this morning will promote
shower development across the Atlantic Waters and portions of
the local islands. Conditions will improve this afternoon as the
upper level trough moves eastward over the Leeward Islands. Drier
and more stable air mass will encompass the region, resulting in
little or no shower activity over Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin
Islands later in the afternoon. North to northwest winds of 10-15
MPH will prevail across the local area.

Mariners can expect seas of 3-5 feet and winds of 10-15 knots across
the regional waters. A moderate risk of rip current continues across
the north coast beaches of Saint Thomas and Saint Croix through at
least midweek.
