Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
348 PM AST FRI MAY 27 2016
Abundant high level cloudiness prevailed across the U.S. Virgin
Islands this afternoon. However...the doppler weather radar
detected only light isolated showers mostly across the surrounding
coastal waters. Elsewhere across the region...not significant
shower activity was observed. Winds were mostly from the east
southeast at 10 to 15 mph and coastal temperatures were in the mid
to upper 80s.
A generally fair and mainly stable weather pattern will continue
to prevail across the local islands tonight and Saturday...as a
ridge pattern aloft persists across the forecast area. Showers
will affect part of the local islands and surrounding waters overnight
and early in the morning. The potential for shower and thunderstorm
development will increase on Sunday as the ridge aloft erodes and
moisture continues to increase across the eastern Caribbean.
Winds of 10 to 15 knots and seas up to 5 feet can be expected
across the local waters tonight and Saturday. A moderate risk of
rip currents will continue only in a few places around the beaches
of Saint Croix.
