Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
520 PM AST Thu Jan 18 2018

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto Rico
and the adjacent islands during the day. A few clouds and showers
developed mainly on the down wind side of the islands due the showers
were of short duration. Daytime high temperatures were near normal
and ranged in the low to mid 80s along the coastal areas. Winds
were mainly from the east to northeast 10 to 15 mph.

Easterly trade winds will occasionally transport patches of low level
moisture across the region through Saturday. This will result in periods
of mostly light to moderate passing showers during the morning hours,
followed by the development of some clouds and isolated showers each
afternoon. Light to moderate easterly trade winds between 10 to 15 mph
can be expected during the next couple of days with breezier conditions
expected for the upcoming weekend.

Across the regional waters, hazardous seas are expected to continue
across most of the local waters and passages with seas between 5 to
6 feet and winds up to 15 knots with occasionally higher gusts, thus
small crafts should exercise caution. A moderate risk of rip currents
will be in effect overnight through Friday for the northwest to northeast
beaches of Puerto Rico, Culebra and Vieques. A moderate risk of rip
currents continues in effect across St. Croix and northern St. Thomas.
