Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
425 PM AST Fri Dec 15 2017

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies prevailed across the U.S
Virgin Islands during the afternoon hours. Isolated to scattered
showers were noted across the surrounding waters with few of them
affecting Saint Thomas and Saint John from time to time. However,
not significant precipitation was observed elsewhere over land
areas so far this afternoon. Today maximum temperatures
were in the mid 80s. Overnight minimum temperatures will fall to
the low to mid 70s with an east to east-northeast winds of 10 to
15 mph.

The local weather conditions are dominated by a strong upper level
ridge over the area. Under this ridge pattern aloft, continue to
expect fair weather conditions with trade wind showers at times as
well as pleasant daytime and overnight temperatures during the
next few days. A developing surface high pressure across the
northeast central Atlantic will maintain an east to east-northeast
wind flow across the region for the next couple of days.

Across the regional waters...Seas up to 7 feet will continue across
the Atlantic water and local passages. Winds will remain from the
east to east-northeast at 10 to 20 knots. For the beach goers,
there is a high risk of rip currents along the north facing
beaches of Saint Thomas and Saint John.
