Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
450 AM AST Tue Jan 24 2017
Mostly clear skies were observed across the local islands during
the overnight hours. Minimum temperatures were in the mid 60s to
low 70s under light and variable winds.
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
briefly erode later today 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 late
tonight and early Wednesday. Therefore, continue to expect fair
weather conditions much of this week with a slightly increase in
shower activity late tonight and into early Wednesday.
Seas up to 6 feet and winds up to 20 knots are expected today.
There is a moderate risk of rip currents across the Atlantic
facing beaches of the northern U.S. Virgin Islands and the east
coast of Saint Croix.
