CHRISTIANSTED – A tropical wave is approaching the Virgin Islands and expected to bring with it waves of up to seven feet across the offshore Atlantic and Caribbean waters today, according to the National Weather Service.
The choppy waves and rough seas will continue tomorrow and showers and thunderstorms are expected to start early Saturday morning, the NWS said.
“Urban and small stream flooding is likely with this shower activity as well as wind gusts,” the NWS said.
The weather service said “a northeast swell (is) expected to invade the local waters, therefore seas will be hazardous around the islands at least through Monday.”
