  • No Significant Rainfall Sunday
    November 17, 2019

    While one or two passing showers cannot be ruled out today, significant rainfall is not forecast. Daytime high temperatures are likely to reach the mid to upper 80s. East-northeast winds will prevail at 10-15 miles per hour.

    Tranquil marine conditions with five foot seas are expected across the regional waters today. Another northerly swell will likely result in choppy seas by Monday night into Tuesday. Winds are easterly at 5-10 knots (7-12 miles per hour). There is a moderate risk of rip currents for the north-facing beaches of St. Thomas and St. Croix.

    IN THE TROPICS
    A large area of disorganized cloudiness and thundershowers is located over the central Atlantic Ocean several hundred miles east of the northern Leeward Islands is associated with an upper-level low and surface trough. Some slow development of this system is possible during the next few days while it moves northwestward and then northward over the open Atlantic.  The disturbance is forecast to merge with a cold front by the middle of next week, and further development is not expected after that time.
