Weather for Cruz Bay, VI

  • Scattered Showers, Possible Thunder Friday
    September 25, 2020

    Scattered showers and one or two isolated thundershowers are possible across the Virgin Islands and the surrounding waters Friday. The active weather of the past few days was the result of a mid to upper-level trough and an associated front with ample moisture. The trough is weakening and will not have as much influence on weather conditions when compared to the past few days. Also, surface high pressure has developed over the western Atlantic leading to a more easterly trade wind flow across the local area.  High temperatures today will average in the upper 80s to near 90.

    A lingering northerly swell will result in seas between seven and ten feet across the Caribbean passages and Atlantic waters of Puerto Rico. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect through this afternoon. Seas will be much calmer next week, though a moderate risk of rip currents will exist.

    IN THE TROPICS
    Tropical storm formation is not expected through five days.
