WIND COULD CONTINUE AND BE JOINED BY RAIN

July 7, 2003 –– A large difference in atmospheric pressure across the region Monday created windy conditions that could last for two days.
Dan Gregoria, meteorologist at the National Weather Service in San Juan, said the west central Atlantic experienced high pressure, while a strong tropical wave passing well south of the Virgin Islands created a low pressure area.
"It should be windy tonight and into Tuesday," Gregoria predicted.
He said winds of 30 mph were reported in St. Thomas and 36 mph in St. Croix. A bit further to the south in St. Maarten, winds of 41 mph were reported.
Gregoria said the wave, which could become a tropical storm, should continue on its westerly track. While it should pose no threat to the Virgin Islands, the territory could see an increase in showers.
He said that Wednesday will still be breezy, but not at the level residents experienced Monday.
Gregoria said no damage was reported.
