January 2011 –
According
to the Antigua Meteorological Service, o
bservations
of the northeast Caribbean so far today indicates mostly dry and sunny
conditions over the Virgin Islands. Latest water vapor imagery is showing
little moisture over this area, while models illustrate a ridge of high
pressure oriented in an east west direction in the lower layers of the
atmosphere over the region. This is responsible for the southeasterly wind flow
across the islands.

A cold front over the Bahamas is forecast to
sweep eastward over the Atlantic. This front is not expected to have any
significant impact on the Virgin Islands, as it is forecast to remain north of
the area. Any rainfall that may result during its passage is expected to be mainly
light
 showers, based on the present
forecast.
