LATEST UPDATE PM: 11 AUG, 2017 INVEST 99L FEW HUNDREDS MILES NORTH OF THE VIRGIN ISLANDS

August 11, 2017352Views

Invest 99L continues to move West North-West at approximately 15 mph. The system is a few hundred miles North  of the Virgin Islands and will gradually move away from the Territory in the next few days.

In association with Invest 99L, lingering moisture and instability from the passage of an area of low pressure will trigger brief cloudy spells with scattered showers across the area over the next twenty four hours. Doppler radar this afternoon has noted a few thunderstorms just south of the Virgin Islands. There is still a chance for thunderstorm development however conditions are expected to remain relatively calm.

Road crews from the Public Works Department and crews from the BVI Electricity Corporation continue to work tirelessly to clear roadways and restore electricity across the Territory.

The DDM will continue to monitor the weather system and provide updates when they become available.

Please continue to monitor local media stations, DDM’s website (bviddm.com) and Facebook at BVIDDM for regular updates.
