A mid to upper level low pressure area is forecast to move over the BVI tomorrow; however moisture levels in the lower atmosphere will restrict the formation of significant weather. By tomorrow night, moisture associated with a tropical wave will create an environment that favors the formation of showers

Tomorrow: Partly sunny with a slight chance of a shower with an increase in clouds and shower activity tomorrow night

Winds: East to east-southeasterly at an average between 11-13knots or 20-24km/h with higher gusts in showers mainly tomorrow.

Seas: Moderate to rough; Heights between 1.5-2.1m or 5-7ft. A small craft advisory is now in effect. Sea bathers are advised to exercise caution mainly on the eastern side of the islands.
