Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
505 AM AST Tue Apr 25 2017
Variably cloudy skies prevailed overnight and early this morning
across the local islands. Although a few passing showers were
noted across the forecast area, minimal rainfall accumulations
were observed. Coastal temperatures were in the upper 70s under
southeasterly winds at 10 knots or less.
Ridge aloft will continue to erode as a broad mid to upper level
trough moves across the western Atlantic and over the local islands.
This feature will combine with plenty of low level moisture to
result in passing showers and thunderstorms across the forecast
area throughout the day. As the trough moves away on Wednesday, a
more seasonable weather pattern is expected to prevail with only
a few passing showers during the overnight hours.
Mariners can expect seas up to 6 feet across the regional waters
and local passages. Southeast winds will continue between 15 to
20 knots. There is a moderate risk of rip currents across most of
the coastal areas.
