The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services and the Department of Disaster Management continue to monitor the progress of (Invest 99L/Disturbance 1).

The wave is approximately 250 miles east north east of the northern Leeward Islands, moving on a northwestward track and is expected in the area late tomorrow or Friday. Showers and thunderstorms associated with the disturbance have become a little better organized during the evening. The system can produce periods of increased cloudiness with a high chance for scattered showers and a moderate chance for isolated thunderstorms. Showers can be moderate to locally heavy at times and the conditions are expected to linger across the area into Friday. Thereafter dry and stable conditions are expected to return to the area as a high pressure ridge becomes dominant once again.

Road crews from the Public Works Department and crews from the BVI Electricity Corporation continue to clear roadways and restore electricity across the Territory.

The DDM will continue to monitor this weather system and provide updates when they become available.

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