North shift... who knew. *-)

Always the same. Glad its weakening - I do NOT want to put up these shutters. Looking forward to that ever beautiful sound of the cistern overflowing. My man is taking a hour long shower tonight he says lol.

Cant say if STT Officemax will close Tuesday or not. STX building has a lot of flooding issues in that store so will likely be closed.

He may want to wait until Wednesday to take that hour long shower, after you see how much rain you've gotten from storm.

Lots of places will be closed on Tuesday including ports and airlines, and even with minimal winds, driving on our roads may not be safe if significant rainfall.

Yea I dont remember Gondola giving much but do you remember that storm a week after it!?! Ive NEVER seen that much water. I got stuck at hull bay that night lol. At least there was beer!

Have a friend in Nevis - he's gonna update me on Danny when it passes him.

Theres another HUGE something coming off Africa now - its massive. That looks scary but hopefully it'll fizzle out also.

I sure hope STX gets some rain we need it badly. Saint Thomas has gotten more than us all summer even now the radar shows they are getting some. All we had was a tiny brief downpour sometime around 4am.

Hope so too, islandjoan. Just the little bits we've had has made a big difference to STT which I've never seen so dry and STX has had it worse. Hope PR gets a good downpour too as they've been dealing with residential water rationing.

From VITEMA:

A Tropical Storm Watch has been posted for the Virgin Islands in anticipation that tropical storm conditions could be experienced in the local area over the next two days.

On the present course and based on projections, Danny will make its closest point of approach to the territory on Monday night at 10 p.m. when the center of circulation will be approximately 36 miles south of St. Croix. At that time, Danny is expected to be a tropical depression with top winds of 35 miles per hour.

Based on the 5PM report and the satellite picture, I think we'll be lucky to get any rain at all.

It's dead, Jim.

So is it looking like you guys won't even be getting any rain from this?? I will do a rain dance for you and hope for some nice new water without any type of winds or storm damage. 🙂 Living in FL, I definitely get the hurricane season thing. And I live in a flood zone where we don't need a tropical storm to flood the streets. It floods down in my neck of the woods all summer. Which gives me another advantage to getting used to the islands. Because of all of the flooded roads, they are terrible. Potholes everywhere.

As OT said, " pffffffft!"
VITEMA keeps saying 2-4inches of rain so guess we'll see.
Feel like I've been watching this darned storm forever!

Tropical Storm Watch discontinued for the U.S. Virgin Islands.

At 11 p.m., the center of Tropical Storm Danny was located near latitude 15.6 degrees north, longitude 59.8 degrees west. Danny is moving toward the west near 15 miles per hour, and a westward to west-northwestward motion is expected over the next 48 hours.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour with higher gusts. Weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Danny is expected to become a tropical depression on Monday, and become a remnant low Monday night or Tuesday. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 105 miles to the northeast of the center.

According to the National Weather Service Weather Forecast Office at San Juan, the USVI will begin experiencing heavy showers associated with the outer bands of the system early Monday afternoon, and more frequently in the evening hours and overnight on Tuesday. The system is expected to clear the USVI by Tuesday afternoon, although some lingering showers may occur.

Rainfall amounts are expected to be in the 2 to 4 inch range across all the islands through Tuesday. Marine conditions expected: 6 to 7 feet with occasional seas up 10 feet and winds between 20 and 25 knots with higher gusts mainly in squalls.
