FOUR DAY FORECAST FOR THE BVI

FOUR DAY FORECAST FOR THE BVI

July 7, 20171287Views

Remnant moisture and instability left behind from  a tropical wave that has exited the area will maintain a high chance of some more showers across the islands tonight and overnight.

Some periods of heavy showers are likely across the British Virgin Islands. However a drier and more stable air mass building across the area tomorrow (Saturday) will yield little shower activity.

A Tropical Depression or a remnant low pressure system passing northeast of the area and inducing a trough across the islands could trigger some passing showers on Saturday evening through Sunday.  By Monday, a drier air mass settling over the islands will yield little shower activity.

Winds: A Northeast to East (NE-E) wind flow will prevail across the region for the next day then followed by an ESE-SE and light flow on Sunday and Monday. An easterly flow will return on Tuesday.

Seas: Marginally safe seas are expected for the next two days. As a result small craft operators should exercise caution especially on the Atlantic side of the Leeward Islands. Otherwise, normal seas will prevail with waves/swells not exceeding 1.5 meters or 5 feet.
