Coastal Shower Activity Forecast For Monday

Most of the shower activity that exists in and around the Virgin Islands is forecast to remain out over the coastal waters with only a few sprinkles making landfall. Drier air is expected to move across the local areas making way for mostly sunny skies by late morning. The east-southeasterly trade wind flow will increase to 20 miles per hour with higher gusts from time to time. Daytime highs will range from the mid 80s to the low 90s.

A Small Craft Advisory will be posted at 8 a.m. as seas are expected to increase to seven feet in the outer Atlantic waters. All other waters should see sea heights of three to six feet, mariners should exercise caution.
East to east-southeast winds to 18 knots (21 miles per hour) are in the forecast.

There is a moderate risk of rip currents across all coastlines of the V.I. today.
