WEATHER SUMMARY FOR THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
510 PM AST THU NOV 27 2014

PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES WERE OBSERVED ACROSS THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
DURING THE MORNING HOURS. SOME PASSING SHOWERS
WERE OBSERVED OVER ST. THOMAS STREAMING DOWNWIND FROM THE ISLAND
OVER THE SURROUNDING WATERS AND CULEBRA ISLAND. MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES
WERE IN THE MID TO UPPER 80S. WINDS WERE GENERALLY FROM THE
NORTHEAST AT 10 TO 15 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS AND SEA BREEZE
VARIATIONS.

TRADE WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO DIMINISH OVER THE FORECAST AREA
BUT MOISTURE WILL INCREASE SLIGHTLY FROM THE DRIER AIR SEEN THIS MORNING.
THEREFORE...WE EXPECT MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES OVERNIGHT. HOWEVER...THE
LIMITED AVAILABLE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL BE ABLE TO FUEL LIGHT
PASSING SHOWERS...MAINLY OVER THE COASTAL WATERS AND WINDWARD
AREAS.

ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS...SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION
ACROSS MUCH OF THE ATLANTIC AND CARIBBEAN WATERS AS THE LOCAL BUOY
NETWORK CONTINUES TO INDICATE SEAS UP TO 6 FEET. WINDS WILL
CONTINUE TO DIMINISH THROUGH FRIDAY AS THE SURFACE GRADIENT
WEAKENS WITH SEAS SUBSIDING BELOW 5 FEET. HOWEVER...WINDS WILL
STRENGTHEN ONCE AGAIN ON SATURDAY THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK WITH
SEAS BUILDING 5-6 FT. A NW SWELL GROUP IS ALSO EXPECTED TO ARRIVE
SUNDAY INCREASING THE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS.
