Drier air is filtering behind the showers observed across the territory earlier, and a quick break in the shower activity is expected early in the day today. However, isolated passing showers cannot be ruled out through the day under an east to southeast wind flow. On Saturday, an upper level trough will aid in the development of showers across the islands. Thundershower development is also possible across the Atlantic waters.
Seas to seven feet are expected across the offshore Atlantic waters and a Small Craft Advisory continues in effect through this evening. Elsewhere, seas will average six feet with a southeasterly wind of about 20 knots (23 miles per hour).
There is a moderate risk of rip currents for the north, east and south-facing beaches of St. Croix, and across the southern beaches of St. Thomas and St. John.
