Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
328 PM AST THU MAY 26 2016
Mostly sunny skies prevailed across the USVI during the morning
hours...becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. The Doppler
weather radar indicated only isolated showers mostly across the
surrounding coastal waters but Limited shower activity was
detected over land areas so far this afternoon. Coastal
temperatures were in the mid to upper 80s with easterly winds
at around 15 mph.
A generally fair and mainly stable weather pattern will continue
to prevail across the local islands through Friday as a ridge
pattern aloft continues to hold across the forecast area. Only a
few light passing showers can be expected from time to time. The
potential for shower and thunderstorm development will increase
during the weekend...as the ridge aloft erodes and moisture
increases across the eastern Caribbean.
Winds up to 15 knots and seas up to 5 feet can be expected across
the local waters. The moderate risk of rip currents will continue
only in a few places around the beaches of Saint Croix.
