RAIN FORECAST FOR WEEKEND; WINDS TO FOLLOW

Dec. 27, 2003 – Look for scattered to numerous showers Saturday afternoon and night and into Sunday across the Virgin Islands, said Brian Seeley, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in San Juan.
"There could be localized areas of street flooding," he said.
At about 1:30 p.m. Saturday, it was raining five inches per hour at Weather Station Zephyr in Coral Bay, St. John.
Seeley said the rainy weather was caused by a tropical disturbance stuck over the Virgin Islands and the Puerto Rico islands of Culebra and Vieques.
A cold front arriving on Sunday should sweep the moisture out to the southeast, he said. However, it will bring windy conditions expected to last through the week. Those windy conditions are expected to create seas rough enough for the National Weather Service to post heavy surf advisories.
