According to the Antigua Met Service, moisture trailing a tropical wave will linger over the North-eastern Caribbean tonight and over the British Virgin Islands tomorrow. As a result, the possibility of showers, being heavy at times and thunderstorms will increase late tonight as the tropical wave continues moving westward. Seas with waves up to five feet and winds up to 15 knots are expected, however winds can be higher near thunderstorms. On Wednesday and Thursday, with high pressure building across the area, shower activity will be limited. On Friday a second tropical wave is expected to move into the area which again can increase the chance of showers over the islands.
