An air mass with Saharan dust will create hazy skies across the local area today. However, pockets of moisture embedded in the trade winds may bring passing showers from time to time. Winds will be from the east to east-southeast at 10-15 miles per hour. Daytime high temperatures are expected in the low to mid 90s.
Fairly tranquil seas will prevail until late this afternoon with five foot seas and winds at less than 15 knots (17 miles per hour). A northerly swell is expected to move across the Atlantic waters and Caribbean passages this evening and through mid-week. There is a moderate risk of rip currents along the eastern beaches of St Croix.
Later this evening, a high risk of rip currents is expected across St. Thomas and St. John, extending to some beaches on St. Croix by Tuesday morning.
