Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
517 AM AST Wed Feb 21 2018

Skies were partly cloudy overnight in the U.S. Virgin Islands. In
Saint Thomas a hundredth of an inch was recorded even though
sprinkles occurred throughout the night. In Saint Croix only a
trace was noted. Breezy conditions prevailed with east northeast
winds of 10 to 20 mph and gusts into the mid 20s. Temperatures
remained in the mid 70s in the lower elevations for most of the
night.

A weak front is approaching the area and will bring increasing
showers by midday. Winds will be a little stronger today than
they were on Tuesday. A wind advisory has been issued for all of
the U.S. Virgin Islands. The showers will also carry stronger
gusts and gusts up to 40 mph are possible. Temperatures will range
from the upper 70s to the lower 80s.

Marine conditions will be challenging today. Wind-driven seas are
expected to be up to 12 feet across the local Atlantic waters and
offshore Caribbean waters, up to 8 to 10 feet elsewhere. East to
northeast winds between 20 to 25 knots are expected across much of
the regional waters today and tonight. Marine conditions will
remain hazardous through the end of the workweek. High risk of rip
currents will continue across most of the local beaches. And now
a high surf advisory for breaking waves up to 10 feet every 7 to 8
seconds will begin at noon for Saint Croix. Breaking waves up to
14 feet are possible by tomorrow morning across the eastern tip of
Saint Croix. The northwest portion of Saint Thomas will also have
breaking waves up to 10 feet later tonight.
