Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
526 PM AST Fri Jan 19 2018

Skies became variably cloudy across the islands, as a surge of low level
moisture moved across the region this afternoon. However, no significant
rainfall was observed over the land areas. Daytime high temperatures
were in the low to mid 80s along coastal areas. Winds were east to
northeast 10 to 15 mph and slightly higher with the passing showers.

Shower activity and cloudiness across the islands will diminish during
the rest of the evening and overnight hours. However, the prevailing
trade winds will continue to bring periods of shallow clouds and passing
showers to the regional waters and parts of the islands from time to
time. Rainfall should be mainly of light to moderate intensity. Winds
will become light and variable over land areas overnight, but increasing
easterly trade winds and breezy conditions are expected over the weekend.
Any showers that do occur during the daytime will be quick passing and
of short duration.

Across the regional waters, hazardous seas are expected to continue
across most of the local waters and passages with seas between 5 to
6 feet and winds up to 15 knots overnight. Deteriorating seas and
increasing winds are expected on Saturday through Sunday. Therefore
small craft advisories will likely be required. A moderate risk of
rip currents will be in effect overnight for most beaches...but a
high risk of rip currents will be likely on Saturday for the north
facing beaches of St. Croix and St. Thomas.
