Rain Sunday, Better Weather Ahead

A vigorous tropical wave should reach the Virgin Islands early Sunday morning, but will clear out Sunday night, meteorologist Felix Castro at the National Weather Service in San Juan said Saturday.

This is good news for those who want to dance the night away at St. John’s annual Festival, which runs until Thursday.

“Through Thursday, it will be generally dry with some passing showers,” Castro said, discussing the weather expected through the July 4th holiday.

As for the tropical wave, Castro said it will bring showers and thunderstorms to the Virgin Islands throughout Sunday. It could dump one to two inches of rain, with winds gusting up to 35 mph when it’s raining.

“It will be rainy most of the day,” he said of Sunday.

Beachgoers will be unhappy about the rain, but residents with cisterns still below full following the winter’s dry weather probably won’t object.
