DISCUSSION  ..RELATIVELY STABLE ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS HAVE NOW SETTLED OVER THE LEEWARDS AND THIS IS RESTRICTING SIGNIFICANT CLOUDS AND SHOWERS OVER THESE ISLANDS. MEANWHILE, SLIGHTLY HIGHER MOISTURE VALUES ARE OVER THE BVI RENDERING GENERALLY PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES OVER THOSE ISLANDS. CURRENTLY, SATELLITE AND RADAR IMAGERY ARE NOT SHOWING ANYTHING OF SIGNIFICANCE WITHIN THE VICINITY OF THESE ISLANDS.

FOR THE NEXT 24HRS: HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN THE DOMINANT FEATURE. MODELS AGREE IN A SUBSIDENT PATTERN OVER THESE ISLANDS AT THE SAME TIME REDUCING MOISTURE LEVELS. THIS TRANSLATES IN GENERALLY FAIR TO PARTLY CLOUDY CONDITIONS. ANY SHOWER WILL BE LIGHT AND BRIEF. THIS OUTLOOK IS CONSISTENT WITH THE LATEST ISSUED FORECAST; AS A RESULT NO CHANGE IS REQUIRED TO THIS PRODUCT AT THIS TIME.
