HEAVY SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED ACROSS THE VIRGIN ISLANDS

HEAVY SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED ACROSS THE VIRGIN ISLANDS

September 14, 20171491Views

Moist and unstable conditions continue to affect Leewards and British Virgin Islands resulting in partly cloudy to cloudy weather with periods of heavy showers and thunderstorms.

Tonight, winds are expected to become more zonal and eventually north-easterly ahead of a tropical wave projected to move through the Leewards on Saturday.

Across the British Virgin Islands the south-easterly wind flow is projected to last until Friday, therefore giving a higher chance for shower and thunderstorm activity to remain in place.

Radar estimates indicate that more than 2-3 inches of rainfall can be recorded overnight.

Sea conditions in the BVI are moderate to locally rough with swells 5-7 feet. Small craft operators and sea bathers should continue to exercise caution.

Please continue to monitor local media stations, DDM’s website (bviddm.com) and Facebook at BVIDDM for regular updates.
