Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
403 AM AST Mon Mar 27 2017
Partly cloudy skies prevailed across the local islands overnight
and early in the morning. Doppler radar detected isolated to
scattered showers moving northward from the Caribbean waters
across the local islands. Temperatures along coastal areas were
in the mid to upper 70s under a south southwest wind flow at less
than 10 mph.
Environmental conditions will remain relatively favorable for
periods of showers through at least Tuesday due to the proximity
of a surface low pressure and abundant low level moisture. The
low level moisture across the region is expected to erode rapidly
tonight and Tuesday as the low pressure system north of Hispaniola
moves further northeastward and away from the local islands. Through
at least Tuesday, continue to expect periods of shower across the
region. Soils are already saturated, therefore heavy rains will
likely to result in urban flooding. A fair weather pattern with
limited shower activity is expected by midweek.
Seas at 6 feet or less are expected across the Atlantic waters
today as seas will continue to subside. However, another swell
will arrive by midweek with seas increasing once again up to 7
feet. A moderate risk of rip current is in effect for most of the
beaches of Puerto Rico.
