FLASH FLOOD WARNING ISSUED FOR THE VI

FLASH FLOOD WARNING ISSUED FOR THE VI

July 13, 20171969Views

Synopsis: As a weak tropical wave gradually moves away from the Leewards and continues to linger across the BVI, lingering moisture could still maintain a moderate chance for some shower activity across the Leewards today and diminish into tonight. However across the BVI, the wave will continue to be enhanced by an upper level trough thus maintaining a high chance for heavy showers and thunderstorms today, gradually diminishing into tonight.

Wx: Mostly cloudy skies today and tonight with a high chance of some scattered morning to mid-afternoon showers, some of which will be locally heavy at times accompanied scattered thunderstorms. Given that the earth is already saturated and the anticipation of more heavy showers this morning, a flash flood warning is in place until midday today. A FLASH FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT MODERATE TO MAJOR FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR OCCURRING IN LOW LYING AND FLOOD PRONE AREAS.
