If anyone is interested, I see that NOAA has posted some high-resolution imagery for the U.S. Virgin Islands, https://storms.ngs.noaa.gov/storms/m...18.056/-64.824

I'm guessing this was posted this morning, as I checked their website last night and didn't see it.

So far it is only the coastal areas of the U.S. Virgin Islands. I hope that as time goes by, there is more satellite data collected for the rest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as Puerto Rico.

Definitely looks like the NC coast will get some impact, tropical storm level. Just hoping it doesn't go further left and get closer. A lot of difference in whether it's one of the models to the east or west even though they are only about 60 miles different.

I go there all I see is a 2 color map. Are you supposed to download 3gb of a TAR data file? I clicked cancel.

Just zoom in on the Virgin Islands (+ button on the upper right), as the high resolution satellite photos are overlaid on the map!

Thanks for the post. The news has covered very little regarding the VI here.
