A high surf advisory is in effect for the British Virgin Islands as the territory continues to experience intermittent rainfall that may continue to affect the territory for the next 48 hours, at least.

A weather bulletin from the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) on Tuesday morning said moderate to long-period sea swells are being generated by what it described as an extratropical cyclone that is reaching the BVI region.

“These swells are expected to cause life-threatening surfs and rip currents near some coastlines,” the DDM said.

The high surf advisory is forecast to remain in effect until Thursday.

The DDM, in the meantime, further advised that the territory will see shower activity that will “spread and persist over the northern islands and surrounding waters”.

“Winds will blow from the northeast. Highs will range around the mid-80s,” the DDM said.

The DDM has given no indication of potential flooding.
