The Virgin Islands could possibly have a rainy weekend. Unstable weather associated with a surface trough near the Leeward Islands and favourable upper level conditions could induce heavy rainfall and thunderstorms over the Virgin Islands this weekend. Rainfall could amount to 3-6 inches from Friday through Monday. Marine conditions especially in the north east region of territory could potentially have significant wave heights. As a result a high surf warning is in effect until Saturday.
Residents are being encouraged to be mindful that these conditions could possibly trigger flash flooding in low-lying or flood proned areas. Individuals that have to commute should exercise caution on the road through these possible wet conditions. Beach goers should also be mindful that sea conditions are expected to remain unfavorable over the weekend.
The Department of Disaster Management encourages residents to remain vigilant and pay keen attention to the updates.
