18TH February 2011 – The remnants of an old frontal boundary, now located north-northwest of the local Islands, will continue to result in isolated to scattered showers and possibly a few thunderstorms today. As some of the cells are slow moving and have a high level of moisture associated with them, the possibility for heavy rain exists.
Mariners can expect winds around 25mph and seas of 9 feet or less today. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect through Sunday Morning.
The DDM will continue to monitor the system and provide weather releases as necessary. Please visit the Department of Disaster Management’s website at www.bviddm.com for continuous updates.
