Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
455 PM AST WED AUG 31 2016
Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies prevailed across the region
this afternoon. Limited shower activity was noted across the
region as high pressure ridge continued to build aloft and a
fairly dry southeasterly wind flow prevailed. Afternoon high
temperatures were in the high 80s to low 90s. Winds were
generally from the east southeast at 10 to 15 mph.
A generally dry weather pattern will continue 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 though at least Thursday.
However. Local winds will continue from the east as the surface
high pressure build north of the region at least until Thursday,
when a weak low level disturbance is expected to move across the
local islands. This should increase the chance for afternoon
shower activity across the islands.
Across the coastal waters...seas up to 6 feet and winds up to 20
knots are expected. Small craft are urged to exercise caution
across some of the coastal waters.
