A mid to upper level low pressure area is forecast to move over the BVI today; however, moisture levels in the lower atmosphere will restrict the formation of significant weather, the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) stated last evening, September 28.
“By tomorrow night, moisture associated with a tropical wave will create an environment that favors the formation of showers.”
Today: Partly sunny with a slight chance of a shower with an increase in clouds and shower activity tonight; winds: East to east-southeasterly at an average between 11-13knots or 20-24km/h with higher gusts in showers mainly today; and seas: Moderate to rough; Heights between 1.5-2.1m or 5-7ft.
A small craft advisory is now in effect. Sea bathers are advised to exercise caution mainly on the eastern side of the islands.
Atmospheric pressure: near normal; sunrise 6:08 am; and sunset: 6:09 pm.
