Showers from Time to Time Tuesday – Rip Current Risk

The existing moist southerly wind flow along with instability in the atmosphere may give way to additional shower development in and around the islands from time to time today.

Hazardous marine conditions are expected across the Atlantic waters and local passages. A northerly swell will continue to slowly diminish across the these waters, but dangerous breaking waves will persist through at least later this evening. Small craft operators should monitor marine conditions. 

A high risk of rip currents exists for most of north-facing beaches of St. Thomas and there is a moderate risk of rip currents for the north-facing beaches of St. John and St. Croix.
