Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
552 PM AST Sun Sep 22 2019

Mainly fair weather conditions were observed across the U.S.
Virgin Islands throughout the day with some isolated showers
observed. High temperatures topped out in the upper 80s to lower
90s. Winds were generally from the east southeast between 10 and
20 mph.

A drier air mass is expected to move across the area tonight and
last through Monday afternoon. This will produce mainly fair
weather conditions with just a few showers possible. Weather
conditions are expected to start deteriorating by Monday evening
as the outer rain bands associated with Tropical Storm Karen begin
to approach the area from the south. The worst conditions
associated with Tropical Storm Karen are expected during the day
on Tuesday with widespread heavy rainfall activity likely. This
will have the potential to result in flooding as well as mudslides
in areas of steep terrain. Winds up to tropical storm strength
are also possible. Weather conditions are expected to improve by
Wednesday as Karen moves away from the local area.

Across the local waters, diminishing seas of up to 7 feet will
continue across the local waters due to a northerly swell leftover
by Tropical Storm Jerry. As Tropical Storm Karen approaches from
the south, marine conditions are expected to become hazardous once
again starting Monday night and continuing through Tuesday with
seas greater than 8 feet expected. A moderate risk of rip currents
will continue across most of the local beaches through Monday.
