This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of USVI.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

.Marine Conditions...Small craft should exercise caution across
local Atlantic waters of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin
Islands.

.Rip Currents...Life-threatening rip currents are possible in the
surf zone particularly along the beaches of St. Thomas and St.
John.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A building high pressure moving from the western to central
Atlantic will maintain fair weather conditions across the region.
A moist air mass associated to the remnants of an old cold front
will approach the islands from the southeast. Therefore, an
increase in rainfall activity is expected. A second cold front is
forecast to approach the region by the beginning of the workweek,
increasing the potential for wetting rains across the islands
until mid-week. Marine and coastal conditions will gradually
improve after the arrival of pulses of a small northerly swells.
A moderate risk of rip currents is expected across beaches of
northern Puerto Rico, Culebra, Vieques, and the northern U.S.
Virgin Islands for most of the forecast period.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
