Partly cloudy skies prevailed across the U.S. Virgin Islands
during the overnight hours. Light showers were observed over the
south coast of Saint John. Elsewhere, no rainfall was detected by
the doppler radar. Minimum temperatures were in the low to mid

An upper level trough will combine with a weak frontal boundary
to promote a moist and unstable pattern across the local islands
through Tuesday Morning. Partly to mostly cloudy skies and a few
showers can be expected today. Heavy showers are possible over
the surrounding waters and portions of the Virgin Islands during
the evening hours. Southeast to southwest winds of 10-15 MPH will
prevail across the islands.
Across the regional waters, seas of 3-5 with occasional seas up
to 6 feet are forecast over the next few days. Mariners can
expected southeast to southwest winds of 10-15 knots across the
local waters. A moderate risk of rip currents continues for the
north facing beaches of Saint Thomas.
