A drier air mass extending from the eastern Atlantic will continue to filter into the region today creating fair weather conditions across the islands over the next several days. Later today, mostly sunny skies with easterly winds of 10-15 miles per hour are forecast with high temperatures will average in the middle 80s.
A slight increase in low-level moisture is expected tomorrow and Saturday, increasing the potential for some scattered showers across the local area. A cold front, currently moving off the east coast of the United States, may increase the probability for shower activity late Sunday into early Monday.
Marine conditions continue to improve with seas across the Atlantic waters ranging from four to five feet while across the Caribbean Sea, seas are on the order of three to five feet. Mariners can expect easterly to northeasterly winds of 10 to 15 knots with higher gusts.
