    November 14, 2019

    A drier than normal airmass will prevail across the local area today although one or two showers may make landfall. Northeasterly winds of 10-15 miles per hour are expected with daytime highs averaging from the middle 80s to 90. Little change in the weather pattern is expected through the weekend. The potential for shower activity may increase slowly on Sunday.

    Seas between three to five feet with winds of 10-15 knots (12-17 miles per hour) are forecast today. There is a moderate risk of rip currents for the northwestern coastline of St. Thomas and the north and southeast facing coasts of St. Croix. Seas are projected to reach seven feet across the outer Atlantic waters on Friday, and as a result, by Friday evening, there will be a high risk of rip currents along the northwest coastline of St. Thomas.
