Mostly cloudy skies prevailed across the U.S. Virgin Islands this
afternoon. Showers moved north from the Caribbean coastal waters
affecting the islands from time to time. These showers were

Winds were generally southeast at 10 to 15 mph.
For tonight, the south wind flow will continue to transport areas
of cloudiness with showers across the local islands. These
showers are expected to affect the territory overnight. For the
upcoming weekend, a surface trough will develop across the western
Atlantic. This surface trough will bring deep tropical moisture
across the region Saturday and Sunday. As a result, periods of
scattered to numerous showers and possible thunderstorms are
expected to affect the region both days.
Small crafts should exercise caution as seas of 4 to 6 feet are
expected across the Atlantic waters. Elsewhere, seas between 3 to
5 feet are expected. A high risk of rip currents is in effect for
the northwest coast of St. Thomas.
