TROUGH AFFECTING CARIBBEAN ISLANDS

April 15, 2011516Views

15TH April 2011 – An upper level trough located over Eastern Hispañola early this morning will continue to move east across the local islands today. This moist and unstable air mass will maintain inclement weather across the waters, at least through this evening. Strong high pressure will build across the Northwest Atlantic over the weekend and induce a moderate northeast trade wind flow across the coastal waters with improving weather conditions.
 
The Department of Disaster Management is encouraging persons to monitor the situation and to be prepared should heavy showers begin to approach our area. Persons in areas prone to flooding should pay close attention for any sudden changes in weather conditions.
 
The DDM will continue to monitor the weather conditions and advise the public accordingly. Visit the DDM’s website at www.bviddm.com and subscribe to receive updates.
