June 16, 202442Views

There are two areas of interest that has a chance  of tropical  development over the next seven days. The southwestern Gulf of Mexico continues to be an area of interest and also an area in the southwestern Atlantic ocean northeast of central Bahamas. Both disturbances might become tropical in nature by midweek. Neither of these disturbances are expected to be a threat to the territory

Whilst those disturbances are no threat to the Virgin Islands, a tropical wave is expected to move into the vicinity of the territory this week and could heighten the chance of shower activity for the week ahead. It is important to note that these tropical waves are getting more robust and closer to the territory. Residents are being asked to monitor updates keenly as the season progresses these waves passing through territory could develop into bigger tropical systems.
