Please be aware of rough seas. Unfortunately a tourist from Panama died today near Bucuti. And another tourist nearly drown near Westin hotel, he is listed in stable condition. The seas are a bit rough around the island today and the coming days, please be aware, and do not under estimate the power of mother nature.
...A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IS NOW IN EFFECT FOR ALL OUR LOCAL WATERS...Weather:
Today through Sunday: Almost clear to partly cloudy.
Forecast high will be 32°C and forecast low, 26°C.
Sunrise will occur at 6:39 A.M. and sunset at 6:46 P.M.

A tight pressure gradient will continue to generate moderate to fresh trade winds across our region. This in turn has caused roughening of the seas. As a result of this, a small craft advisory has been issued. As for our current weather, there are no significant cloud formation expected over the ABC-islands.
Fairly rough with wave heights between 2.0 and 3.0 ( 6 to 9 feet). A small craft advisory has been issued for our region. Swimmers and owners of small boat are urged to venture with caution or avoid the seas if possible due rough seas.
