TROPICAL CYCLONE WATCH STATEMENT
Thursday 20th August 2020

A Tropical Storm watch is now in effect. However a warning may be required later today...

A Tropical Storm watch means that Tropical Storm or developing Tropical Storm conditions pose a possible threat to the specified area within 48 hours. Residents should start to implement their hurricane disaster plans.

The Antigua and Barbuda meteorological service is closely monitoring the progress of Tropical Depression 13. This system is expected to strengthen and has the potential to become a Tropical Storm and impact the islands.

Given the normal uncertainty in the forecast track, intensity and size of the Tropical Cyclone it is still not certain what exact Tropical Cyclone hazard values, if any are expected to occur across the area. Not withstanding, the depression could be in the vicinity by late Friday or Saturday, as a Tropical Storm.

Therefore, it poses a moderate threat more so for Barbuda than Antigua with the potential to cause significant impacts from storm force winds, high seas, minor storm surges and minor flooding.

Residents should monitor the progress of this system and have your hurricane disaster plans prepared for quick action to protect life and property.
