Weather for Charlotte Amalie, VI

  • Hot, Sunny, Sahara Dust Tuesday
    July 19, 2020

    Mainly fair weather is anticipated today with the presence of Saharan dust. Another hot day is in store for the territory today with temperatures in the low to mid 90s and southeast winds of 10-15 miles per hour.

    Seas to five feet with winds up to 15 knots are expected. There is a moderate rip current risk for some beaches along the northern and eastern coastlines of St. Croix.

    IN THE TROPICS
    Showers and thunderstorms have mostly dissipated near a trough of low pressure located several hundred miles south-southwest of Bermuda.  Although a weak area of low pressure is expected to form over the next day or so, abundant dry air surrounding the system is likely to limit significant development.  This system is forecast to move northwestward at about 10 miles per hour over the southwestern Atlantic today, stall several hundred miles southwest of Bermuda tonight, and then drift southwestward on Thursday. This weather system will have no effect on the Virgin Islands or the Caribbean.
