Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
429 PM AST Sun Dec 17 2017

Skies became variably cloudy as a surge of trade wind moisture and accompanying
showers moved across the region . Some of these showers continued to
affect portions of the islands, as well as to coastal waters from time
to time. Today`s high temperatures were in the low to mid 80s along
coastal areas. Breezy conditions continued with winds mainly from the
northeast at 15 to 20 mph and occasional gusts between 25 to 30 mph
in some areas.

During the rest of the evening and overnight hours, the prevailing northeasterly
trades will continue to bring patches of shallow moisture and periods
of light to moderate rain across the local waters and portions of the
islands. However, the overall the weather conditions will be dominated
by a persistent mid to upper level ridge pattern. This will support
mostly fair and breezy weather conditions, except for the occasional
passing trade wind showers followed by locally induced afternoon showers
each day. The afternoon showers if any should be focused mainly on
the downwind side of the islands and over the coastal waters.

Across the regional waters...Seas up to 7 feet will continue across
the Atlantic waters and local passages overnight. Winds will remain
from the east-northeast at 15 to 20 knots. For the beach goers, there
is a high risk of rip currents for the north and east facing beaches
of Saint Croix...and a moderate risk of rip currents for the rest of
the beaches of the islands.
