Light Rain and More High Surf Monday


A cold front stalled to the south of Puerto Rico should generate partly cloudy skies and light rain today, however, showers that do develop will produce light rainfall amounts. Winds will become more east-southeasterly resulting in a drier air mass over the local area today through Wednesday. Drier conditions with limited showers and low level moisture will be noted across the region through midweek. As a result of the shifting winds, warmer than usual temperatures are forecast.

Hazardous marine conditions are expected today due to a combination of a northerly swell and breezy conditions. The breezy winds and northerly swell event should last through at least Tuesday. While marine conditions may improve to the point with advisories are no longer required, occasional passing showers with gusty winds may be noted across the regional waters over the next several days.

There is a high risk of rip currents across all beaches in the Virgin Islands today, and a High Surf Advisory is also posted due to the hazardous marine conditions.
