…A FLASH FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR ST. MAARTEN UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE…
Today: Cloudy and breezy with scattered showers, some of which may be heavy and possible thunderstorms.
Thursday: Partly cloudy to cloudy at times with isolated showers possible.
Today through Thursday morning: Southeast to east with a gentle to fresh breeze of 10 to 18 miles per hour and higher gusts.
An active tropical wave passing through the Lesser Antilles will continue to bring showers, some of which may be heavy with possible thunderstorms, to the local region today. Motorists and residents in areas prone to flooding and falling rocks are advised to be vigilant and exercise caution as flash flooding is still possible.
Seas are peaking near 7 feet and are expected to gradually subside on Thursday. Small craft operators and sea bathers should exercise caution.
A tropical wave passing through the Lesser Antilles still has a medium (50%) chance of formation in 2 days and a high (70%) chance in 5 days. The bulk of its activity is currently south of St. Maarten, but conditions may change at any time during this forecast period.
At 5:00 am today Tropical Storm Gaston had maximum sustained winds near 70 mph. The current forecast track will take Gaston well north of the Lesser Antilles, therefore posing no threat to St. Maarten.
The St. Maarten Meteorological Department will continue to monitor the progress of these systems.
Partly cloudy to cloudy and breezy with isolated showers.
