Affected Jurisdictions: St. Croix, St. John, St. Thomas Counties

Headline: (EXTENSION - time, area) Flash Flood Watch issued April 14 at 1:58PM AST until April 16 at 8:00PM AST by NWS San Juan

...The potential for periods of heavy rains and flash flooding isexpected to continued at least until Sunday night....FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...The National Weather Service in San Juan has expanded the* Flash Flood Watch to include Culebra, Vieques, St CroixSt.Thomas and St. John.* Through Sunday evening* Moisture advection from the south, and favorable upper leveldynamics will result in periods of showers and thunderstormsacross the islands through the weekend. These showers andthunderstorms are expected to drift slowly across the area,increasing the risk for flash flooding.* These heavy rains will bring rapid rises in area rivers andstreams and will make transiting on roads and low lying areasimpassable. This may also may trigger dangerous mudslides anddebris flow without warning.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that leadto flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take actionshould Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

Looks like it might be a soggy Easter weekend.
Stay safe.

Bring a small umbrella. There are no Jet Bridges at STX, only open air stairs but it's only a short maybe 50 yards walk from the stairs to the covered sidewalk. I've never had to get on/off the plane in pouring rain there, don't know if there's anything they do for that. Maybe they hand out plastic bag ponchos?

Don't worry you will be fine. It might not even be raining when you arrive. Judging from what I see on stormcarib.com the weather is south of us now and the winds are from the northeast. Enjoy the view of the west end beaches, if you are landing while it's still light out.
