Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
520 PM AST Fri Apr 20 2018

Gusty east southeast winds of 15 to 25 mph blew across the U.S.
Virgin Islands today, pushing scattered clouds across the sun but
being mostly unsuccessful at brining measurable rain. Saint Croix
did have five hundredths of an inch in the early morning hours
but was mostly dry after that. Saint Thomas had only traces
during the morning. Better rain fell north of the area.
Temperatures were in the low to mid 80s. Winds gusted up to 30 mph
later in the morning and during the midday hours.

A band of clouds will send showers around the islands overnight
but only very light amounts are expected. Then, Saturday, only
scattered light showers are indicated for the morning hours with
the afternoon being mostly sunny. Winds will abate somewhat
overnight but return at almost the same strength tomorrow. Lows
tonight will range from the mid to upper 70s, highs from the low
to mid 80s.

A small craft advisory continues in effect for seas up to 8 feet
across the outer Atlantic waters and up to 7 feet across the outer and
Caribbean offshore waters and the local passages. Small craft will
need to exercise caution in the local inner waters. There is a
moderate to high risk of rip currents tonight across Saint Croix
tonight and Saturday, but only a moderate to low risk in Saint
Thomas and Saint John.
