National Weather Service San Juan PR
532 PM AST Thu Feb 22 2018

Variably cloudy skies were observed today across the U.S. Virgin
Islands with a few brief showers leaving minimal accumulations.
The daytime maximum temperatures were in the low to mid 80s and
the local winds were around 15 to 20 mph with gusts reaching 30
mph in some areas.

For tonight, there will be isolated to scattered brief showers
across the local area. The rainfall accumulations are expected to
be minimal. Rainfall is expected to increase in the early morning
hours of Friday as a patch of moisture moves in, causing numerous
but brief showers across Saint Thomas and Saint John. For Friday
afternoon, scattered and brief showers are still expected but may
be a bit less frequent than in the morning hours, especially for
the northern islands.

Wind-driven seas are expected to remain up to 12 feet across the
local Atlantic waters, offshore Caribbean waters, and the Mona
Passage tonight, up to 8 to 10 feet elsewhere. East to northeast
winds between 15 to 20 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. High surf advisory is in effect for breaking waves
of 10 feet or higher until Friday afternoon.
