  • Drier but Showers Possible
    July 16, 2019

    Although a drier air mass accompanied by Saharan dust continues to move across the region, patches of low-level moisture may enhance the potential for shower activity as the day progresses. Daytime high temperatures will reach the upper 80s to low 90s. East to northeasterly winds at 10-20 miles per hour with higher gusts will prevail today.

    Choppy marine conditions with seas to six feet and winds to 20 knots (23 miles per hour) are expected. Given these conditions, small craft operators are urged to exercise caution, particularly across the offshore Atlantic and Caribbean waters. There is a moderate risk of rip currents for most beaches on St. Croix. A low risk of rip currents exists the coastlines of St. Thomas and St. John.
