The movement of Tropical Storm Fiona into the area later tonight, September 16, 2022, into tomorrow will lead to very unsettled weather conditions over and around the Virgin Islands (VI), as the territory remains under a Tropical Storm Watch during the forecast period, the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) has stated.

The weather today: Partly cloudy skies with a 60 percent or moderate chance of brief passing showers.

Weather tonight: Overcast and windy conditions with numerous showers, thunderstorms and strong gusty winds as Tropical Storm Fiona moves into the area after midnight.

Seas: 3.1 to 4.6 metres or 10 to 15 feet, with swells up to 2.4 metres or 8 feet.

On the forecast track, the center of Fiona is expected to move across the Leeward Islands tonight and early Saturday, and move near or just south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico late Saturday into Sunday.
