Weather for Cruz Bay, VI

  • Rain Sunday, then Dry Again
    July 4, 2020

    Two plumes of moisture located east of the Virgin Islands could bring some showers to the local area during the morning hours today. A westward-moving tropical wave brought showers and thundershower activity to the region during the overnight hours.  High temperatures today will average in the middle 80s to the lower 90s with east to southeast winds of 15-20 miles per hour with higher gusts.

    Small craft operators are urged to exercise caution due to choppy six-foot seas and winds to 20 knots.  A Small Craft Advisory will be in effect across the offshore Atlantic waters tonight.

    There is a high risk of rip currents at Cramer’s Park on St. Croix and a moderate rip current risk elsewhere.

    IN THE TROPICS
    The tropics remain devoid of any organized weather system. The tropical wave which affected the Virgin Islands overnight is located along 64 degrees West, another wave is at 27 degrees West, and a third, which recently rolled off the African coast, is at 18 degrees West.  All are on a westerly track with no signs of tropical development.
