Moisture extending from the northeast ahead of a stalled cold front could lead to some showers developing from time to time today. An area of drier air is moving through the region this morning yielding mostly sunny skies with high temperatures in the mid 80s. As high pressure builds in the central Atlantic, breezy conditions will be observed with east-northeast winds of 10-20 miles per hour. These general conditions will continue for the better part of the week, with an increased potential for additional showers on Thursday and Friday.

Seas to six feet with winds to 20 knots (23 miles per hour) are forecast. In some of the exposed waters of the Atlantic, Caribbean and Anegada Passage, seas may increase to seven feet tonight. Small craft advisories will be posted tonight as marine conditions become hazardous primarily due to the wind generated waves. There is a moderate risk of rip currents for some beaches on St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix today.

Sunrise: 6:40 a.m.
Sunset: 5:44 p.m.
