…SMALL CRAFT AND HIGH SURF ADVISORIES ARE IN EFFECT FOR
ST. MAARTEN UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE…
This afternoon through Tuesday midday: Fair to partly cloudy and breezy with a brief passing shower possible.
Forecast High: 29°C / 84°F Forecast Low: 25°C / 77°F
Sunset Today: 5:54 P.M. Sunrise Tomorrow: 6:46 A.M.
This afternoon through Tuesday midday: Easterly to east northeasterly with a gentle to moderate breeze of 09 to 18 mph and higher occasional gusts.
A strengthening Atlantic high-pressure ridge will produce mostly moderate winds over the next several days. The resultant stable atmosphere combined with low moisture levels will continue to restrict precipitation across the region.
Long period northeasterly swells will cause seas to peak up to 9 feet during the next few days. Consequently, high surf and small craft advisories will remain in effect for St. Maarten until further notice. Small craft operators and sea bathers should continue exercising caution.
STATE OF THE SEA: Moderate to Rough WAVES/SWELLS: 6 to 9 feet
SPECIAL FEATURES: None.
OUTLOOK through Wednesday midday: Fair to partly cloudy and breezy with a passing shower possible.
