Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
433 AM AST Wed Mar 1 2017
Showers increased as another band of moisture moved across the
area. Although the showers went mostly around Saint Thomas and
saint John, several developed directly over saint Croix and in
about the space of 10 minutes left 24 hundredths of an inch.
Temperatures were in the low to mid 70s in the lower elevations
with upper 60s in the higher hills. Winds in the U.S. Virgin
Islands were 10 to 23 MPH from the east northeast with gusts to
30 MPH in Saint Croix with the showers.
Breezy conditions and a seasonable weather pattern will continue
to prevail across the local islands but the showers are expected
to taper off after this morning and return Thursday morning to a
lesser extent. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s followed by
lows mainly in the lower 70s. Winds will be stronger today than
yesterday and gusts in the lower 30s will be possible.
Winds around 20 knots with wind driven seas of 6 to 8 feet
are expected across most of the local waters during the next few
days. A moderate to high risk of rip currents will continue
across most of the coastal areas through Friday particularly
across Saint Croix. Little--if any--improvement is seen in this
situation next week.
