AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
FOR THE LEEWARD ISLANDS AND BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
ISSUED BY ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA METEOROLOGICAL SERVICES

16:15 UTC JANUARY 18 2020

 

DISCUSSION:   CLOUDINESS AND SHOWERS DEVELOPED THIS MORNING IN ASSOCIATION WITH A FRONTAL TROUGH ACROSS THE AREA. SOME OF THE SHOWERS WERE MODERATE TO HEAVY AT TIMES. THE LATEST MODEL GUIDANCE PROLONG THE EFFECTS OF THE TROUGH ACROSS THE ISLANDS OVER THE NEXT TWENTY FOUR HOURS MAKING FOR HIGH CHANCES FOR CLOUDINESS AND SHOWERS. MEANWHILE SEAS ARE LIKELY TO CONTINUE DETERIORATING AND SPECIAL ADVISORIES FOR OPEN WATER AND NEAR SHORELINE SURFS ARE IMMINENT. THE ARVERSE AND HAZARDOUS SEA CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.
