WEATHER SUMMARY FOR THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
513 PM AST SAT AUG 29 2015

PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES PREVAILED THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS THE LOCAL
ISLANDS. ISOLATED SHOWERS WERE OBSERVED ACROSS THE SURROUNDING
COASTAL WATERS...BUT NO PRECIPITATION WAS DETECTED OVER LAND
AREAS. HIGH TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE UPPER 80S TO LOWER 90S WITH
EASTERLY WINDS AT 12 TO 18 MPH WITH GUSTS INTO THE MID 20S.

LOW LEVEL MOISTURE DECREASED RAPIDLY ACROSS THE NORTHEAST
CARIBBEAN TODAY AS THE MOISTURE ASSOCIATED WITH THE REMNANTS OF
TROPICAL STORM ERIKA MOVED WESTWARD WELL AWAY FROM THE REGION.
A TROPICAL WAVE JUST TO EAST OF THE LESSER ANTILLES WILL REACH
THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN TONIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING. THIS WILL RESULT
IN AN INCREASE IN SHOWERS AND POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE
LOCAL ISLANDS.

MARINERS SHOULD EXPECT SEAS UP TO 6 FEET AND WINDS 20 KNOTS
OR LESS. THERE IS A MODERATE TO HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS
FOR MOST OF THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS. WINDS AND SEAS WILL CONTINUE
TO DIMINISH OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
