Tranquil weather conditions with hazy skies have prevailed across the local area for the last few hours. These conditions are expected through the remainder of the morning. Moisture embedded in the easterly trades will move across the region from time to time leading to the development of one or two isolated showers. Today`s high temperatures are forecast to be near the middle to upper 80s with easterly winds of 10-15 miles per hour.
Over the next several days, low-level moisture will increase as a result of patches of moisture embedded in the easterly trades. Winds are forecast to shift more to the east-southeast on Friday which will yield warmer than usual temperatures. Some scattered shower activity is in the forecast for Saturday.
Mariners can expect six foot seas across portions of the Caribbean waters. Caution should be exercised when navigating these waters. Also, there is a high risk of rip currents for the northeastern beaches of the Virgin Islands.
