Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
529 AM AST Thu Jan 19 2017
Clear skies prevailed across the U.S. Virgin Islands overnight.
Winds were light and variable. It was cold overnight across the
U.S. Virgin Islands. Temperatures were in the mid to upper 60s.
A strong surface high pressure ridge over the southeastern United
States will drift slowly eastward to the northern Bahamas through
Friday. This will maintain a moderate northeast to east wind flow
across the local islands at least through tonight. This flow will
advect few patches of low level clouds with very light and brief
showers across the region. These showers will move quite rapidly
across the area, therefore rainfall accumulations should remain
minimal. Mostly dry conditions can be expected to continue across
the local islands through the early part of the upcoming weekend.
Across the coastal waters, seas up to 5 feet and winds up to 10
knots are expected to continue across most of the local waters.
Moderate risk of rip current is expected mainly across the north
facing beaches of the islands.
