#TurksandCaicos, May 03, 2018 – Providenciales – According to weather information received from the Bahamas Department of Meteorology, a stationary front across the Central Bahamas, along with a surface trough in the vicinity of the Southeast Bahamas (including the Turks and Caicos Islands), will continue to produce unstable conditions across the area today.
The forecast further states that a disturbance is expected to develop in the vicinity of the Southeast Bahamas and TCI on Friday 4th May 2018.
