Showers, possible thunderstorms as tropical wave affects island
The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Services has advised that cloudy skies, pocket of moderate showers and possible isolated thunderstorms are anticipated as a tropical wave affects the islands.
Residents and motorists in areas prone to flooding and landslides and near rivers and streams should remain alert. These conditions are expected to persist along Wednesday as trailing instability lingers. Early morning showers are also likely on Thursday, however some marginal improvement remains a possibility as the day progresses, so a mixture of sunshine and showers are forecast.
On Friday the ITCZ (Inter Tropical Convergence Zone – where north and south east trade winds meet) is expected to migrate northward and bring unsettled weather conditions to our islands. T
he SVG Meteorological Services will continue to closely monitor this feature and provide the necessary updates.
Seas are currently slight to moderate in open water with swells peaking near 1.0m o western coasts and near 1.8m on eastern coasts and rising. Seas could become generally moderate from tonight, therefore, small craft operators and sea bathers should exercise caution for above normal sea swells and occasional gusty winds.
Varying concentrations of Saharan dust haze will cross the islands from Wednesday.
