Tonight through Friday evening: Northerly to Northeasterly with a light to moderate breeze of 06 to 13 mph, becoming lighter and variable particularly during the latter part of this forecast period. 

   

SYNOPSIS:    

Pockets of moisture associated with Hurricane Teddy will cause isolated showers during this forecast period. Additionally, a loose surface pressure gradient will generate mostly light winds.   

Swells generated by Hurricane Teddy will result in hazardous sea conditions for the next few days. Small craft operators and seas bathers should exercise extreme caution.

Tropical storm Vicky which is located over the central Atlantic, has been downgraded to a remnant low. This system does not pose a threat to St. Maarten. 

Environmental conditions surrounding an area of low pressure located over the eastern Tropical Atlantic remains conducive for development. A tropical depression could form over the next few days.
