Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
456 AM AST Sat Mar 24 2018

Partly cloudy skies prevailed across the local islands overnight
and early this morning. Doppler radar indicated scattered showers
moving southward across the Atlantic waters. However, not significant
precipitation was observed over land areas so far this morning. Early
morning temperatures were in the low to mid 70s along coastal
areas. Surface winds were light and variable.

Low level moisture will continue to gradually increase today as a
weak and diffuse frontal boundary moves across the region. This
will increase the chance for showers development over the region.
Scattered showers are expected this afternoon across the local
islands. Low level winds are expected to turn more from the east
to east northeast today becoming northeasterly by Sunday as a high
pressure ridge builds north of the region.

Seas of 3 to 6 feet and winds up to 15 knots are expected today.
Seas are expected to increase up to 7 feet tonight and Sunday with
the arrival of a northerly swell and increasing northeasterly
trade winds. Small craft are urged to exercise caution across the
offshore Atlantic waters. A moderate risk of rip current is in
place today for some northern facing beaches of St. Thomas and St.
