Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
510 AM AST Sat Feb 17 2018

Variably cloudy to partly cloudy skies prevailed across the region overnight,
as periods of passing low level clouds with embedded showers affected
the coastal waters and portions of the islands. Some showers produced
periods of moderate to locally heavy downpours across the northern
U.S. Virgin Islands. Winds were northeast 5 to 10 mph, but
occasionally higher with wind gusts accompanying the passing
showers. Early morning temperatures were in the low 70s along
coastal areas.

Under the persistent east northeast wind flow, patches of low level
clouds and passing showers are expected to move inland from time to
time across the coastal waters and portions of the islands, overnight
and early in the morning. Later in the afternoon, a few clouds and
an isolated shower may develop and stream westward over some of the
islands but mostly sunny skies will prevail. Normal or just below
normal temperatures will prevail each day.

Choppy and hazardous seas between 4 to 6 feet will continue across
the Atlantic Offshore waters through the weekend. As a result Small
Craft operators should exercise caution due to moderate to locally
fresh easterly winds. Hazardous marine conditions are expected
once again by late Sunday and into early next week.

For local Beach goers and visitors, there is a moderate risk of
rip currents for most of the north and east facing beaches of
the islands.
