Synopsis: Moisture and instability associated with the remnants of Beryl will influence conditions across the islands today increasing the chances of showers.
Weather today: Cloudy with a 80 percent or high chance of showers and a moderate chance of thunderstorms.
Weather tonight: Partly cloudy with a 40 percent or moderate chance of showers.
Seas: Rough with both waves and swells of 2.4 to 3 metres or 8 to 10 feet. Warnings are still in effect for small craft operators and sea bathers against hazardous sea conditions.
Rainfall Estimates: 2 – 3 inches can be higher in some locations
Winds: Wind Advisory remains in effect. A high wind advisory means winds of 22 to 27 knots with higher gusts, in this case, are imminent but are not strong enough to warrant a high wind warning. Wind of this strength could make some outdoor activities uncomfortable, if not outright dangerous. High winds can create dangerous fallen or blowing objects. Residents should secure loose outdoor items, which can be blown away, and caution should be taken if driving
