Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
412 AM AST Wed Nov 22 2017

Clear skies prevailed across the U.S. Virgin Islands overnight
and early this morning. Doppler radar and satellites images
depicted only light showers moving northwestward across the
surrounding waters but little to none rain was observed over land
areas so far this morning. Coastal temperatures were in the mid to
upper 70s under a light easterly wind flow.

A mid to upper level ridge will continue to build across the forecast
area today and hold through much of the week. However the easterly
winds will bring small patches of low level moisture at times.
Therefore, expect a fair and generally stable weather pattern
across the local islands today with light passing showers possible
during the morning and evening hours. The chance for shower
activity will increase late tonight into Thursday as low level
moisture increases across the eastern Caribbean.

Across the regional waters...Mariners can expect seas of 4 to 6
across the offshore Atlantic waters and seas of 3 to 5 feet
elsewhere across the rest of the local waters. Winds will remain
from the east at 10 to 15 knots. There is a moderate risk of rip
currents across Botany beach of Saint Thomas and across most of
the beaches of Saint Croix.
