The latest forecast models are projecting that the trough will remain over the area for the remainder of the day and tomorrow with also a light prevailing South South-East to southerly flow bringing some warm moist air into the area. As a result, the chance of shower and thunderstorm activity will remain high and particularly this afternoon where the peak of daytime heating could lead to some heavy localized showers and thunderstorms. With the heavy showers expected and the soil already becoming saturated from previous rainfall events, the threat of flash flooding will increase. Therefore a flash flood watch will be issued by the Antigua Met Service for low-lying areas across the islands from 1 p.m this afternoon to 8 p.m this evening.
