12th
May 2011 8PM
– The unsettled
weather pattern will continue across the local region through at least Friday
as a broad trough associated with a strong persistent surface low over the
western Atlantic increase the  surge of
tropical moisture northwards across the area. Therefore considerable cloudiness
with showers and isolated thunderstorms will remain possible especially during
the afternoons across parts of the islands and surrounding waters. Some of the
showers and storms may produce moderate to locally heavy rainfall at times. No
flash flood watch or warning has been issued for the territory.
