TWO AREAS OF DISTURBED WEATHER IN THE ATLANTIC

September 9, 20161536Views

Two areas of disturbed weather (Invest 93L and Invest 94L) in the Atlantic Region are being observed. Invest 93L just north of the territory is producing  cloudiness and showers  with no signs of  organization and is expected to move west north west away from the Territory. Invest  94L on the other hand is showing signs of development prompting the Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Service to issue an alert statement urging persons in the Virgin Islands to monitor the system.

According to Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Service, this large area of disturbed weather associated with a westward-moving tropical wave is located a little more than 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

This system is gradually becoming better organized, and conditions are forecast to be favorable for a depression to form this weekend or early next week.

Although this disturbance is expected to move toward the west-northwest and then northwest over the central Atlantic and away from the islands, residents in the Virgin Islands should continue to closely monitor the progress of this system over the next few days.

The Department of Disaster Management will continue to monitor the systems and advise the public accordingly. Please visit our website at www.bviddm.com and subscribe for updates or join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/bvi.ddm/
