This afternoon through Wednesday midday: East-northeasterly with a gentle to moderate breeze of 9 to 18 mph, and higher gusts.
Brisk winds generated by a strong pressure gradient is pushing shallow patches of moisture across the region. As a result, a few brief showers are possible at times. Additionally, light concentrations of Saharan dust will lower air quality. Persons with allergies and/or respiratory illnesses should take the necessary precautions.
A combination of strong winds and northeast to easterly swells will account for hazardous seas for the next few days. Consequently, Small Craft and High Surf Advisories are in effect for St. Maarten until further notice. Small craft operators and sea bathers should exercise extreme caution.
