The seismic network recorded two volcano-tectonic earthquakes this week.
There have been no measurements of the SO2 flux since 8 January.
Pyroclastic flows can occur at any time without warning on any side of the volcano, including Gages from where they can travel rapidly into Plymouth. Tracks across the Belham Valley can be destroyed or heavily modified by flash flooding or lahars, and caution should be exercised crossing the valley during and after rainfall.
The Hazard Level is 1. There is no public access to Zone V, including Plymouth. Maritime Zones E and W are daytime transit only between sunrise and sunset (boats may sail through the zone but must not stop). Anyone who ignores these restrictions is liable to be prosecuted.
WEATHER SYNOPSIS: Moisture from an old frontal boundary, coupled with the effects of the strong low-level winds, will continue to support a favourable environment for brief showers over the Leewards and BVI today. These conditions will improve by tonight. Meanwhile, dangerous marine conditions continue around these islands; Hence warnings remain firmly in place.
WEATHER: TODAY: Partly cloudy to cloudy with occasional brief showers
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy with a moderate chance of a brief evening shower.
SPECIAL WARNINGS: Warnings for small craft operators and sea bathers remain in effect against dangerous marine conditions and mariners are advised to avoid the waters. Seas will begin to slowly subside by tonight.
WINDS: East-northeast at average speeds between 28-37km/h or 15-20 knots over land increasing to an average between 18-25 knots over coastal waters and elevated terrain and gusting higher in squally conditions mainly over coastal waters today. Winds will begin to subside beginning tonight.
SEAS: Very rough with heights between 10-14ft or 3.1-4.3m. Warnings for small craft operators and sea bathers remain in effect against dangerous marine conditions and mariners are advised to avoid the waters. Seas will begin to slowly subside by tonight.
SUNSET TODAY: 6:05 pm. SUNRISE TOMORROW: 6:26 am.
MEANWHILE, A SURFACE TROUGH WILL INDUCED SOME INSTABILITY ACROSS THE AREA AND THIS WILL INCREASE THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS ACROSS THE ISLANDS.
WEATHER: TODAY: PARTLY CLOUDY BECOMING CLOUDY WITH PERIODS OF SCATTERED SHOWERS. TONIGHT: PARTLY CLOUDY WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS.
WINDS: NE - ENE 8-14KTS OR 15 TO 26 KM/H.
SEAS: MODERATE TO LOCALLY ROUGH SWELLS 1.5 TO 2.1M OR 5 TO 7 FT. A CAUTION IS IN PLACE FOR SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS AND SEA BATHERS.
WEATHER TODAY: Fair to Partly cloudy with a 20 percent or slight chance of showers.
WEATHER TONIGHT: Partly cloudy becoming cloudy after midnight with a 70 percent or high chance of showers.

WINDS: East-northeast to northeast ranging between 17 to 26 km/h or 9 to 14 knots with slightly higher gusts over open waters.
SEAS: Moderate with wave heights 1.2 to 1.8 meters or 4 to 6 feet. Cautions remain in effect for small craft operators and sea bathers against above normal sea conditions.
SYNOPSIS: A dominant surface high-pressure system will maintain stable conditions across the area; however, shallow cloud patches moving over the islands could generate some brief intervals of showers.
WEATHER TODAY: Fair to partly cloudy with a moderate or 40 percent chance of showers.
WEATHER TONIGHT: Partly cloudy with a slight or 20 percent chance of showers.
WINDS: Easterly at 11 to 22 km/h or 6 to 12 knots.
SEAS: Moderate at heights 1.2 to 1.8 m or 4 to 6 feet. Sea bathers should exercise cautions.
SUNSET TODAY: 6:02 pm. SUNRISE TOMORROW: 6:29 am.
SYNOPSIS: Patches of shallow clouds will continue to be pushed over the Leewards and BVI by a moderate windflow associated with a ridge of high pressure and these will cause brief interruption at times to otherwise normal weather conditions.
WEATHER: Today: Partly sunny to sometimes locally cloudy with a moderate chance of brief morning showers.
Tonight: Partly cloudy with a moderate chance of a brief overnight shower.
SPECIAL WARNINGS: Small craft operators and sea bathers should continue to exercise caution.
WINDS: East to east-northeast with average wind-speeds between 19- 26km/h or 10-14knots.
