15th September 2020 – The National Hurricane Centre continues to monitor several tropical systems in the Atlantic. None of the named tropical cyclones are a threat to the British Virgin Islands except for swells that may be generated by Teddy as he passes North West around mid-week. The focus is on disturbance as it is showing signs development. We will continue to monitor this system and provide updates. See the latest on disturbance 2 below.

Disturbance 2 is located just off the west coast of Africa near 9N, 19W or approximately 3102 miles from the British Virgin Islands. A general west-northwest track is expected over the next several days. It remains too early to determine whether or not it will make it as far west as the Caribbean. Impacts, if any, to the eastern Caribbean would not occur until over a week from now. The chance of tropical development is near 70 percent.

Persons at home and abroad are encouraged to download the DDM’s Alert app in the Apple App store or Google Play store to receive updates of any hazards affecting the Territory.
