Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
451 AM AST Tue Mar 28 2017
Partly cloudy skies prevailed across the local islands overnight
and early in the morning. Doppler radar detected isolated showers
across the coastal waters. 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 favorable for shower
and thunder development. For this morning, limited shower
activity is expected. However, an increase in cloudiness with
showers is expected during the afternoon hours. Soils are already
saturated, therefore heavy rains will likely to result in urban
flooding as well as rises along small streams. A fair weather
pattern with limited shower activity is expected by Thursday
as a high pressure system builds across the region.
Seas 3 to 5 feet will continue to prevail across the Atlantic
waters, with seas 2 to 4 feet across the Caribbean waters. A
low risk of rip currents will continue across all local beaches.
