Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
457 PM AST Thu Aug 17 2017

An active tropical wave across the northeast Caribbean, produced
cloudy skies with showers and thunderstorms across the local
islands and surrounding waters overnight, this morning and early
in the afternoon. Strong gusty winds were also detected with the
thunderstorms. Winds were mostly from the east southeast at 10 to
15 mph with gusty winds near showers and thunderstorms. Due to the
abundant cloud cover temperatures this afternoon were mostly in
the upper 80s.

As the tropical wave continues to move westward, shower and
thunderstorm activity diminished rapidly by mid afternoon, leaving
mostly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered shower activity
mostly across the coastal waters. Abundant cloudiness will
continue across the region during the rest of the afternoon and
this evening with some passing showers across the local islands
as a relatively drier air mass moved across the region behind the
tropical wave.

Mariners can expect seas between 5 to 7 feet and winds 15 to 20
knots. Therefore, small Crafts Advisories are in effect. In
addition, there is a high rip current risk for St Croix.
