NASSAU, The Bahamas - A moist unstable air mass continues to linger over The Bahamas creating unsettled weather across the islands, the Bahamas Department of Meteorology has advised.

The weather will be cloudy to overcast and very windy conditions today and tonight, with widespread rain and thunderstorms, some of which can be heavy at times.

The winds will be east to southeast at 20-25 knots this morning but increasing to 20 to 30 knots by this afternoon.

The seas will be running 6 -9 feet this morning but building to 7-11 feet tonight.

That moist unstable air mass that affected the country for the week will gradually move out of the area by Friday night, bringing clearing skies, the Met Department says.

The National Emergency Management Agency will continue to monitor the weather situation until it no longer poses a threat to the country.  Report any concerns to NEMA at 242-322-6081/5
