Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
555 AM AST Thu Feb 22 2018

Skies cleared in Saint Thomas and Saint John as showers moved
south. Saint Croix remained mostly cloudy overnight with a few
very light showers. Winds ranged from 15 to 20 mph at both
locations with gusts to as much as 30 mph, driven by strong high
pressure in the northern Atlantic. Minimum temperatures ranged
from the upper 60s to the lower 70s.

A weak cold front passed through the area early last night and is
now south of the local outer Caribbean waters. A drier slot of air
is expected to produce mostly sunny skies this morning. Clouds in
the cool and still relatively moist air at lower levels streaming
in from the Atlantic, will cause shower activity to increase
later this afternoon and tonight over Saint Thomas and likely
Saint Croix. Amounts will be light today and tonight.
Temperatures will only reach the lower 80s again today.

Wind-driven seas are expected to be up to 12 feet across the
local Atlantic waters, and the offshore Caribbean waters today
through Friday, up to 8 to 10 feet elsewhere. East to northeast
winds between 15 to 25 knots are expected across much of the
regional waters today, tonight and Friday. Marine conditions will
remain hazardous through the end of the week. A high risk of rip
currents will continue across most of the local beaches for the
next few days. A high surf advisory is in effect for breaking
waves of 10 feet or higher until Friday afternoon mainly on coasts
exposed to northeast wave-action.
