Waters this afternoon, and up to 10 feet tonight. A northerly swell
will create hazardous seas across the rest of the Atlantic Waters and

beaches of Saint Thomas starting this evening.

.Rip Currents...There is a high risk of rip currents for the north
facing beaches in the northern Virgin Islands.

temperature and heat indices across the islands.

.Days Two through Seven...Wednesday through Monday

Moist and unstable weather conditions will increase the potential for
showers and thunderstorm across the islands through at least early
Thursday. Urban and small stream flooding will be possible each
afternoon. A long period-northerly swell will create hazardous
coastal conditions along the Atlantic Coastline through at least
Friday. Above normal heat heat indices will be possible each
afternoon.

Spotter activation is not anticipated. Please relay any information
about winds, waves, and rip currents to the National Weather Service
