There was a promising patch of blue sky peaking through the Tuesday morning cloud cover here on St. John. Within minutes, however, a squall came out of the east producing heavy rains and strong gusty winds.
It’s 6:30 am. The internet is down, I image due to the storms, so I’ll post this later on today hopefully. There’s the sound of heavy rain falling on the metal roof and the distant sounds of thunder. The high winds are blowing water under ten feet of overhang porch roof and into the sliding doors, which due to some design flaw, I guess, allows some of the water to be driven underneath the doors and into the house. Towel time.
Today’s forecast for St. John from the Weather Underground
“Flash Flood Watch in effect through this evening…
Cloudy with numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms. Locally heavy rainfall possible. Highs 89 lower elevations ranging to 82 higher elevations. Mainly southeast winds 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 70 percent.”
By the way:
Judging from what’s happening outside, I believe we can make that 70% chance of rain into 100%
