Status / Scope / Type Actual / Public / Alert
High wind advisory goes into effect Thursday until Saturday
Synopsis: Strong gusty winds, owing to the forecast significant steepening of the pressure gradient, are expected. The direct wind threat level to life, livelihood, property and infrastructure will be minimal. Notwithstanding, these winds could make some outdoor activities uncomfortable, if not outright dangerous. High winds can create dangerous fallen or blowing objects. A high wind advisory means strong winds in the range of 40 to 48 km/h (25 to 31 mph, 22 to 27 knots) with higher gusts imminent or occurring but are not strong enough to warrant a high wind warning. Wind: 30 to 44 km/h (16 to 24 knots; 18 to 28 mph), with strong gusts to around 69 km/h (37 knots; 43 mph). Potential impacts: Includes injuries; very hazardous seas; soil erosion; localized disruptions of businesses; disruption to outdoor and sporting activities; disruption of transportation (air and especially sea); vehicular accidents and financial losses.
Caution: Residents should secure loose, light outdoor items, which can be blown away, and caution should be taken when driving. Please continue to monitor. Stay tuned to updates coming out of the Met Office via antiguamet.com and facebook.com/abmetservice
