Mostly Sunny Through Friday


Expect decreasing clouds and shower activity by mid-morning resulting in mostly sunny skies for the remainder of the day today.  Winds will be mainly from the east at 15-20 miles per hour, and daytime high temperatures will range in the low to middle 80s.

Hazardous marine conditions will persist through at least Friday evening, due to the moderate to fresh trade winds produced by an area of high pressure over the central Atlantic. Small craft advisories are posted for most of the local waters, and mariners can expect winds to 20 knots (23 miles per hour) with higher gusts. Rough, wind-driven seas of between five to eight feet, occasionally to ten feet, are also forecast.

There is a high risk of rip currents for the some of the north and east-facing beaches of St Croix. Elsewhere, there is a moderate risk of rip currents.
