27th December 2019 – Mostly cloudy skies will become variably cloudy by late morning and during the afternoon hours. However, sufficient lingering moisture across the region will give way to isolated to scattered showers over parts of the islands during the afternoon hours. No significant flooding is expected as a gradual drying trend and

improving weather conditions are expected for the next few days. Winds will be generally from north northeast today becoming more easterly over the weekend and increasing in intensity as a surface high pressure ridge will build north of the region.

Seas are expected to continue between 4 and 6 feet across some of the local waters. Therefore, small craft operators should exercise caution. Then, seas will increase between 6 and 10 feet beginning late tonight and on Saturday into next week. For the beach goers, there is a moderate risk of rip currents for some of the local beaches.
