Weather Summary for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan PR
536 PM AST Thu Mar 22 2018

Variably cloudy skies were observed today across the U.S. Virgin
Islands with mainly fair weather. Daytime maximum temperatures
were in the mid 80s and the winds were from the east to east
southeast at 10 to 15 mph.

Isolated to scattered showers are expected tonight and early on
Friday and moisture gradually increases. The available moisture
will increase over the local area into the weekend as a frontal
boundary and associated surface trough moves across the region.
The chance for shower activity and thunderstorm development will
therefore increase due to instability aloft. Winds will be mainly
east to southeast at 10 to 15 mph with occasionally higher gusts.

Fairly tranquil marine conditions will continue tonight into
Friday across the local waters with seas of 2 to 5 feet and winds
up to 15 knots. Seas are expected to increase by Saturday and
Sunday with the arrival as a northerly swell and increasing
northeasterly trade winds. There is a moderate risk of rip
currents for a few beaches in Saint Thomas and Saint Croix.
