  • More Rain and Clouds Saturday, Probably Sunday, Monday Too
    January 25, 2020

    With a cold front stalled just to the southeast of St. Croix, and its associated showers stretching from Columbia northeast to the Leeward Islands, expect more light to moderate shower activity today. By the middle of next week, we should begin to see at drying trend, and a return to a more seasonal weather pattern.  Daytime high temperatures are forecast to range from the low to middle 80s with light and variable winds at less than ten miles per hour.

    Seas will average five to eight feet in the Atlantic waters and Caribbean passages today as a northerly swell moves through the local area. Seas are forecast to begin subsiding later today but are expected to remain hazardous through Sunday. A Small Craft Advisory is posted, and mariners are advised to exercise caution.

    There is a high risk of rip currents along the northwest coast of St. Thomas through tonight.
