Invest 99L is located 315 miles to the northeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico near 22.0N, 63.0W. It is moving to the northwest near 15 mph. This motion will continue, taking the disturbance north of Puerto Rico and Hispaniola today. It is forecast to pass to the northeast of the Bahamas this weekend. There is a 50 percent chance the disturbance could develop into a tropical depression or weak tropical storm within the next 7 days.
In association with Invest 99L, a low pressure system in the vicinity of the Virgin Islands has the potential to generate some unstable conditions across the islands. For the next twenty four hrs, there is a possibility for cloudy skies with a chance of showers and a moderate chance of thunderstorms.
Road crews from the Public Works Department and crews from the BVI Electricity Corporation continue to work tediously to clear roadways and restore electricity across the Territory.
