Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
342 PM AST Sat Jun 24 2017

Partly cloudy skies prevailed across the U.S. Virgin Islands
this afternoon. Doppler radar indicated isolated to scattered
showers mostly across the surrounding waters with few of them
affecting mostly St Thomas from time to time. Winds were
generally from the east at 10 to 15 mph with some higher gusts
and the maximum temperatures were in the upper 80s.

Isolated to scattered passing showers embedded in the prevailing
easterly wind flow are still expected overnight and early Sunday
over the local islands and surrounding waters. An upper level
ridge will remain as the main weather feature across the region
for the next couple of days. This feature will continue to limit
the showers and thunderstorms development across the local islands
and surrounding waters on Sunday. A tropical wave is expected to
reach the region late Sunday night and Monday, increasing the
chances of showers and thunderstorms across the local islands and
surrounding waters.

Across the regional waters, mariners can expect seas of 3 to 5
feet and east winds between 15 and 20 knots. As a result, small
boat operators should exercise caution due to fresh winds. There
is a moderate risk of rip currents across the north and east
coasts of Saint Croix.
