WEATHER SUMMARY FOR THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
424 PM AST FRI NOV 28 2014

EXCELLENT BEACH DAY TODAY WITH MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES ALONG THE
COASTAL AREAS...TURNING PARTLY CLOUDY OVER ST CROIX IN THE
AFTERNOON. SHOWERS WERE NOTED OVER THE CARIBBEAN WATERS AND SOME
MOVING INLAND OVER THE SOUTHERN ISLAND IN THE AFTERNOON...BUT SO
FAR NO SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL WAS OBSERVED. MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES
WERE IN THE MID 80S WITH EASTERLY TRADE WINDS AT 5 TO 10 MPH WITH
SEA BREEZE VARIATIONS.

LIGHT EASTERLY TRADE WINDS WILL PREVAIL OVER THE FORECAST AREA
INTO THE UPCOMING WEEKEND. NEAR NORMAL HIGH TEMPERATURES CAN BE
EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND SHOULD BE NEAR THE MID 80S
ALONG COASTAL AREAS. MOISTURE WILL INCREASE SLIGHTLY FROM THE
DRIER AIR SEEN TODAY. THEREFORE...WE EXPECT MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES
OVERNIGHT WITH SOME BRIEF PASSING SHOWERS. THE LIMITED AVAILABLE
LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL BE ABLE TO FUEL PASSING SHOWERS...MAINLY
OVER THE COASTAL WATERS AND WINDWARD AREAS.

ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS...WINDS CONTINUE TO DIMINISH ACROSS THE LOCAL
WATERS WITH SEAS NOW SUBSIDING TO BELOW 5 FEET. HOWEVER...THE EASTERLY
TRADE WINDS WILL ONCE AGAIN INCREASE ON SATURDAY THROUGH EARLY NEXT
WEEK WITH SEAS BUILDING SLIGHTLY 5 TO 6 FT. A NORTH NORTHWEST
SWELL GROUP IS ALSO EXPECTED TO ARRIVE ACROSS THE LOCAL WATERS BY
SUNDAY AND MONDAY. THIS ALONG WITH NORTHEAST WIND WAVES WILL INCREASE
THE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS.
