Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
507 AM AST Sun Feb 18 2018

Variably cloudy skies prevailed across the islands overnight, as passing
clouds and trade winds showers moved in and out of the region. While
most of the showers remained over the coastal waters, a few brushed
some of the islands from time to time. Accumulations were however
very minor. Winds were light and variable to calm. Early morning
low temperatures were in the low 70s along coastal areas.

Mainly fair weather conditions will prevail across the region during
the daytime. However, periods of passing low level clouds and occasional
showers will affect the region for the next several days under a cool
advective pattern. Limited afternoon shower activity is forecast each
day as an overall stable weather pattern will prevail, except for
the quick passing showers and breezy conditions. Winds are forecast
to significantly increase by Monday and Tuesday, as the surface high
pressure ridge will build across the Atlantic just north of the region.
Cool and pleasant temperatures will continue with highs in the low
to mid 80s and lows in the low 70s along the coastal areas.

Choppy seas between 4 to 6 feet will continue across the regional waters
during the day but is expected to increase to 5 to 7 feet later tonight
as the trade winds increase. Marine conditions will deteriorate overnight
through the middle of next week, with wind driven seas of 7 feet or
greater expected. Small craft operators should exercise caution across
the local waters and passages. Small Craft Advisories will be in effect
starting later this evening and continuing through Monday for most
of the local waters.

There is a high risk of rip currents for the northwest to north central
facing beaches of Puerto Rico, and a moderate risk elsewhere except
for the west facing beaches of PR.
