Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
426 PM AST Sun Dec 10 2017

Partly cloudy skies prevailed across much of the U.S. Virgin
islands today, as the prevailing easterly trade winds continued
to transport occasional patches of low to mid level moisture
across the area. San Juan doppler radar showed passing showers
across the area today, these showers were of light intensity and
left little accumulations. The daytime high temperature reached
the lower to mid 80s but tonight overnight low temperatures will
fall to the mid 70s. Winds will prevail out of the east at 5
- 10 mph tonight and early tomorrow.

A fair and stable weather pattern with mostly sunny skies can be
expected for the rest of the day, as the surface high pressure north
of the region will remain the dominant weather feature. The moderate
trade winds today will continue to bring occasional patches of
shallow moisture across the coastal waters and local islands. This
will be sufficient to support the development of a few brief
afternoon showers in isolated areas mainly downwind of the islands
over the coastal waters. Widespread precipitation and significant
rainfall accumulations are not anticipated across the islands for
the next few days.

Across the regional waters...Mariners can expect slowly subsiding but
hazardous seas of 5 to 7 feet, and winds from east northeast between
10 to 15 knots with higher gusts. Small craft advisories will continue
in effect for most of the local waters through this afternoon. There
is a moderate to high risk of rip currents for some of the north and
east facing beaches of Saint Thomas, Saint John and Saint Croix.
