ISSUED BY ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA METEOROLOGICAL SERVICES

15:44 UTC APRIL 26 2017

 

DISCUSSION  ..DRY AND STABLE ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS CONTINUED TO DOMINATE ACROSS THE LEEWARDS AND BVI THIS MORNING, SUPPRESSING ANY MEANINGFUL SHOWER ACTIVITY OVER AND AROUND THE ISLANDS AT THIS TIME. THIS IS CLEARLY EVIDENT ON RADAR GRAPHICS AS WELL AS SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWING GROSS LACK OF CLOUDS AND MOISTURE. THE LATEST FORECAST MODEL RUNS INDICATE THAT THESE DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS, WITH ONLY BRIEF PASSING OVERNIGHT AND EARLY MORNING SHOWERS POSSIBLE.
