ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) continues to monitor a massive weather system—Tropical Disturbance One—which now has a 50 per cent chance of development in the next 48 hours and is forecast to pass near or north of the Virgin Islands (VI) late Tuesday, November 13, 2018.

The information was disclosed by the NHC on November 12, 2018, which has indicated that a vigorous tropical wave located about 200 miles east of the Leeward Islands is producing a large area of disturbed weather over much of the western tropical Atlantic Ocean.

Showers and thunderstorm activity has increased and have become a little more concentrated and environmental conditions are forecast to gradually become more conducive for the development of a tropical depression or a tropical storm during the next day or so. 

See previous article published on November 12, 2018

Residents of the Virgin Islands (VI )are being warned to monitor a Tropical Disturbance which has a large area of cloudiness with thunderstorms extending from near the Lesser Antilles northeastward over the tropical Atlantic for several hundred miles.

The weather system is associated with a westward-moving tropical wave and an upper-level trough of low pressure.

The alert was issued by the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) today, November 12, 2018.

It was noted that notwithstanding that thunderstorm activity has increased, upper level conditions over the Leeward Islands are expected to restrict cyclone development during the next 48 hours.

The disturbance is however expected to generate showers and some gusty conditions during its passage late Tuesday November 13, 2018 into Thursday November 15, 2018.

    We’ve always had the good, bad and the ugly when it came to weather. Just let’s prepare for it. As long as it isn’t a category 4 or 5, we will survive.
