Synopsis: A relatively strong Atlantic High Pressure system will continue to generate a moderate to fresh trade wind flow across the area during the next 24 hours. Additionally, pockets of low level moisture embedded within this flow will continue to be transported across the area and maintain a heightened chance for shower activity over and around the islands during that time.
Weather today: Partly sunny skies, with brief cloudy spells and a 60 percent or moderate chance of brief passing showers.
Weather tonight: Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with a 70 percent or high chance of overnight showers.
Winds: East at 15 to 30 km/h or 9 to 18 mph, reaching as high as 44 km/h or 28 mph during showers as well as over open waters and in elevated areas.
Seas: 1.8 to 2.4 metres or 6 to 8 feet. Therefore a small craft advisory remains in effect.
Sunset today: 6:14 pm.
