Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
505 AM AST MON JUL 25 2016
Partly to variably cloudy skies were observed across the U.S.
Virgin Islands during the overnight hours. Trade wind showers
affected mainly St. Croix and isolated coastal areas of St.
Thomas. Temperatures were in the upper 70s to lower 80s across
coastal areas. The wind was mainly from the east to northeast at
5 to 10 mph with higher gusts near showers.
For Today, trade wind showers should diminish during the morning
hours as a brief area of drier air moves across the islands from
the east. Any shower activity during the day should be isolated
to locally scattered due to streamers forming off the islands.
However, an increase in moisture is expected late tonight into
Tuesday due to a tropical wave. This could lead to more frequent
showers and isolated thunderstorm development across the forecast
area. Fair weather conditions but with hazy skies due to Saharan
dust are expected from Wednesday through Friday.
Across the waters...seas up to 5 feet and east winds up to 20
knots are expected. Small crafts should exercise caution across
the Atlantic waters. There is a moderate risk of rip currents
across the eastern half of Saint Croix.
