Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
513 AM AST Fri Mar 23 2018

Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies prevailed across the region overnight
with passing showers noted moving across the coastal Atlantic waters
and local passages. A few of these showers moved inland across some
of the islands but no significant rainfall was observed or reported
at this time. Early morning temperatures were in the low to mid
70s along coastal areas. Surface winds were light and variable.

Expect passing shower activity to continue mainly across the coastal
waters but some may affect the east coastal sections from time to
time during the morning. For the rest of the day and through the
weekend, low level moisture is forecast to gradually increase as a
frontal boundary and associated surface trough will move across the
region. This will increase the chance for shower activity over the
islands especially during the afternoon hours. Winds will be mainly
east to southeast at 10 to 15 mph through Saturday, becoming northeasterly
by Sunday as a high pressure ridge will build north of the region.

Marine conditions will remain fairly tranquil with seas of 2 to 5 feet
and winds up to 15 knots. Seas are however expected to increase by
Saturday and Sunday with the arrival as a northerly swell and increasing
northeasterly trade winds. A moderate risk of rip current is in place
today for a few beaches in Saint Thomas and Saint Croix.
