AL 95 TRACKS SLIGHTLY TO THE SOUTH

September 5, 2023243Views

Virgin Islands residents are advised to closely monitor the development of AL95, currently approximately 1570 miles (2528 kilometres) south east of Road Town. It is moving west north-west at 16 mph (27 kph) and has maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (56 kph).

Based on current projections we should expect the outermost rain bands to move over the Virgin Islands on Sunday which could bring 1 to 3 inches (25 to 75 mm) of rainfall.

Any further shifting of AL95 to the south could bring tropical storm force winds and higher rainfall totals.Models agree that this system is very likely to develop into a tropical cyclone in the coming days, however, it is too soon to say with confidence how close the system will pass to the Virgin Islands.

Based on the proximity of the forecast track and the storm’s potential for rapid development, residents are encouraged to have storm plans ready to activate.
