ISOLATED SHOWERS AFFECTED THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS DURING THE MORNING
HOURS ON THURSDAY. HOWEVER...NO SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL AMOUNTS WERE
OBSERVED. AN UPPER LEVEL LOW NORTH OF THE AREA COMBINED WITH
INCREASED MOISTURE AND DIURNAL HEATING TO GENERATE ISOLATED
SHOWERS OVER THE ADJACENT COASTAL WATERS. A FEW OF THESE SHOWERS
ALSO AFFECTED SAINT CROIX WHILE MOVING SLOWLY NORTHWEST. IT WAS
WARM AGAIN TODAY AT CHARLOTTE AMALIE AND FREDERIKSTED WHERE HIGHS
REACHED 89 AND 92 DEGREES RESPECTIVELY. SIX HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH

A TROPICAL DISTURBANCE LOCATED ABOUT 500 MILES EAST OF THE LESSER
ANTILLES AT 5 PM AST IS BEING MONITORED BY THE NATIONAL
HURRICANE CENTER FOR ANY SIGNS OF TROPICAL CYCLONE DEVELOPMENT.
THIS SYSTEM COULD MOVE ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE NORTHEAST CARIBBEAN
DURING THE UPCOMING WEEKEND LEADING TO AN INCREASE IN SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS AND INCLEMENT WEATHER CONDITIONS ACROSS U.S. VIRGIN
ISLANDS. RESIDENTS AND VISITORS SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR THE
PROGRESS OF THIS DISTURBANCE AS IT APPROACHES THE CARIBBEAN.

MARINE CONDITIONS SHOULD REMAIN RATHER PLEASANT THROUGH AT LEAST
FRIDAY WITH MOSTLY EAST TO SOUTHEAST WINDS AT 15 KNOTS OR LESS AND
SEAS AT OR BELOW 4 FEET. MARINE CONDITIONS SHOULD QUICKLY
DETERIORATE SATURDAY AS THE AFOREMENTIONED TROPICAL DISTURBANCE
MOVES ACROSS THE NORTHEAST CARIBBEAN. MARINERS ARE URGED TO KEEP
ABREAST OF THE PROGRESS OF THIS SYSTEM.
