Locations to be Affected:Especially exposed coastal waters and elevated and open terrains on the windward side of the islands.

Timing:Midnight until Monday afternoon.

Synopsis:Strong gusty winds are expected due to the tightening pressure gradient caused by the passage of Major Hurricane Beryl.

Although the direct wind threat level to life, livelihood, property, and infrastructure is minimal, these winds could make some outdoor activities uncomfortable or even dangerous.

Gale-force wind gusts may affect your balance; it is advisable to avoid exposed elevated areas or precarious positions like cliff edges under the forecast conditions. High winds could also create dangerous falling or blowing objects.

A high wind advisory means strong sustained winds in the range of 40 to 48 km/h (25 to 31 mph, 22 to 27 knots) with higher gusts imminent or occurring.
