High Surf Advisory for the British Virgin Islands has been cancelled…however as the swell event decreases there is still a possibility for rip currents.
Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the sandbar and near structures such as groins such as jetties and piers.
Synopsis: A broad ridge of high pressure will maintain a relatively stable atmosphere over the BVI for the next 24 hours
Today: Sunny to partly sunny with a slight chance of a light late- afternoon shower
Tonight: Fair to partly cloudy. Any shower will be light and brief
Winds: East-southeasterly at average speeds between 11-14knots over land and coastal waters.
Seas: Moderate with heights of 1.5-2.1m or 5-7ft: Small craft operators should exercise caution mainly in the coastal waters east and southeast of the islands.
