The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services has indicated that a trough system extending from Tropical Depression Karl along with daytime heating and associated sea-breeze convergence will likely result in another day of localized heavy downpours.

Possible rainfall total for the next 24 hours is 5 to 25 mm (0.20 to 1.00 in), with the potential for locally higher amounts. As a result, a flash flood advisory may be required sometime today.

The Met Service has predicted partly sunny conditions in the Virgin Islands today, with a 70 percent (or high) chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly across the northern half of the islands.

Weather tonight: Mostly clear with a 20 percent (or slight) chance of showers

Winds: Southerly at less than 19 km/h or less than 10 knots.

Seas: Moderate with heights near 1.8 metres or 6 feet and decreasing. Cautions are in effect for sea-bathers and small craft operators, mainly for Atlantic coastal waters.

Atmospheric Pressure: Near normal.
