Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
520 AM AST Tue Jan 17 2017
Showers moved across the islands at times. This activity produced
periods of moderate to heavy rains and gusty winds. However, these
showers moved fast enough and no significant rainfall accumulations
were detected. Early morning temperatures were in the lower to mid
70s along the coast.
Strong surface high pressure continues eastward across the west
Atlantic to maintain moderate east to northeast trade winds across
the forecast area at least through Wednesday. As a result, patches
of moisture with clouds and showers are expected to move across
the islands at times. This will be followed by a gradual clearing
and mostly sunny skies during the daytime. Rainfall amounts should
remain minimal across the islands due to the rapid movement and
short duration of any shower activity. Pleasant temperatures,
around the climatological values for January, should prevailed
across the islands.
Although marine conditions are slowly improving, hazardous marine
conditions continues mainly across the Offshore Waters and
Caribbean passages. Mariners can expect seas up to 7 feet with
occasional seas up to 9 feet. Small craft advisories remain in
effect for the offshore waters and Caribbean Passages. Marine
conditions are expected to improve over the next few days.
