THIS IS FOR THE LEEWARD ISLANDS AND BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS…

A TROPICAL CYCLONE ALERT REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THE LEEWARD ISLANDS AND THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS. A TROPICAL CYCLONE ALERT MEANS THAT, IN THIS CASE, A TROPICAL STORM IS IN OUR MONITORED AREA OF CONCERN BUT A WATCH OR WARNING IS NOT REQUIRED, AT THIS TIME.

THE STORM-FORCE WINDS, WHICH ARE MAINLY LOCATED TO THE NORTH AND EAST OF THE CENTER, ARE NOT EXPECTED OVER THE BVI; HOWEVER, THERE REMAIN A MODERATE THREAT TO MARINE ACTIVITY BECAUSE OF INCOMING SWELLS AROUND THE BVI.

AT 5PM THE CENTER OF TROPICAL STORM EARL WAS LOCATED NEAR LATITUDE 19.3 NORTH, LONGITUDE 63.2 WEST. OR ABOUT 150 MILES NORTHWEST OF BARBUDA, ABOUT 76 MILES NORTH-NORTHWEST OF ANGUILLA AND ABOUT 111 MILES EAST-NORTHEAST OF THE BVI.

EARL IS MOVING TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST NEAR 10 MPH (20 KM/H) AND A SLOWER WEST-NORTHWESTWARD TO NORTHWESTWARD MOTION IS EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS, FOLLOWED BY A TURN TOWARD THE NORTH ON TUESDAY. ON THE FORECAST TRACK, THE CENTER OF EARL IS EXPECTED TO PASS NORTH OF THE VIRGIN ISLANDS AND PUERTO RICO TONIGHT AND SUNDAY.

MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS HAVE INCREASED TO NEAR 50 MPH (65 KM/H) WITH HIGHER GUSTS.SLOW STRENGTHENING IS POSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS. TROPICAL-STORM-FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 105 MILES (280 KM), MAINLY TO THE NORTH AND EAST OF THE CENTER WHILE THE ESTIMATED MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE IS 999 MB (29.50 INCHES).

RESIDENTS IN THE BVI ARE ADVISED TO MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF EARL AS ANY SOUTHWARD SHIFT OF THE CENTER WOULD INCREASE THE THREAT OF TROPICAL-STORM-FORCE WINDS REACHING, THOSE ISLANDS.

RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES, ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS PARTS OF THE LEEWARD AND BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS THROUGH THIS WEEKEND WHICH COULD CAUSE MINOR FLASH FLOODING IN SOME ISLANDS.

STRONG GUSTY WINDS, ESPECIALLY IN SQUALLS, ARE ALSO POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE THESE ISLANDS; ADDITIONALLY, SWELLS REACHING BETWEEN 5 TO 8 FEET COULD PRODUCE HAZARDOUS MARINE CONDITIONS FOR BEACH-GOERS IN THE BVI DURING THE WEEKEND; HENCE, MARINE ADVISORIES ARE NOW IN EFFECT FOR THE BVI.

RESIDENTS MAINLY IN THE BVI ARE ADVISED TO CONTINUE TO CLOSELY MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF TROPICAL STORM EARL THE NEXT ADVISORY WILL BE AT 11 PM E.T.C TONIGHT.
