WEATHER SUMMARY FOR THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
518 AM AST SAT AUG 29 2015

MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES PREVAILED OVERNIGHT...WITH ISOLATED TO
LOCALLY SCATTERED PASSING SHOWERS NOTED OVER THE ISLANDS.
RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH THESE SHOWERS WERE
MINIMAL. COASTAL TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE UPPER 70S TO LOW
80S WITH EASTERLY WINDS AT 10 MPH OR LESS.

AS TROPICAL STORM ERIKA CONTINUES TO MOVE AWAY FROM THE
EASTERN CARIBBEAN...LOW LEVEL MOISTURE IS EXPECTED TO DECREASE.
HOWEVER IT WILL BE ENOUGH TO RESULT IN TRADE WIND SHOWERS
THROUGH THE MORNING HOURS. TROPICAL WAVE EAST OF THE LESSER
ANTILLES WILL REACH THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN LATER TODAY. THIS
WILL RESULT IN A BETTER CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
ACROSS THE LOCAL ISLANDS ON SUNDAY.

MARINERS SHOULD EXPECT SEAS UP TO 6 FEET AND WINDS 20 KNOTS
OR LESS. THERE IS A MODERATE TO HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS
FOR THE NORTH COASTS OF SAINT THOMAS AND SAINT CROIX. WINDS
AND SEAS WILL CONTINUE TO DIMINISH OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
