Tropical Storm Josephine is no longer a threat to the Territory as it passes approximately 112 miles North of Anegada. It is showing signs of disorganisation and may be downgraded to a depression today, August 16, 2020.
The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services has discontinued issuing Tropical Cyclone Alerts for Josephine; however, they have put the Virgin Islands on a High Surf Advisory until Sunday during the passing of the system.
This disturbance is moving quite rapidly at 20 mph as it approaches the Windward Islands. Satellite imagery highlights a clusters showers and thunderstorms and the disturbance is expected to impact Windward Islands later today into Monday.
Just moving off the African Coast, this disturbance currently has a 20 percent chance of development, according to the National Hurricane Centre. It is expected to move west for a few days while crossing the Atlantic with the possibility for more development.
DDM said it will continue to monitor this system as it is about a week away from the Lesser Antilles.
If the grass is greener on the other side, you can bet the water bill is higher.
