WEATHER ADVISORIES FOR POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE TWO

Issued at 12:00 noon, Tuesday 28th June, 2022 

 

A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect from 6:00 pm 28th June, 2022 

At 11:00 am, Potential Tropical Cyclone Two was centred near 9.8°N 57.5°W or 340 miles  south east of SVG. Moderate to heavy showers and thunderstorm activity with rainfall  accumulations of 50 to 100mm (2 to 4 inches) are possible from late tonight with higher  accumulations predicted across the Grenadines. A Flash Flood watch would be in effect from  6:00 pm Tuesday 28th June, 2022. Residents and motorists in areas prone to flooding and  landslides or near rivers and streams should be prepared. 

A Flood-Watch is issued when conditions are favourable and there exists the possibility of  flooding during the watch period. This flash-flood watch may be upgraded to a warning if  conditions warrant. 

 

A High Wind Advisory is in effect from 12:00 noon 28th June, 2022 

A High Wind Advisory is issued when sustained winds of 25 to 35 mph (40 to 55 km/h) are  forecast to affect the land area. Higher gusts can be expected near showers. Residents,  especially in the Grenadine Islands are strongly urged to be vigilant against falling trees limbs,  loose outdoor objects and disconnected over-head wires. Residents are also advised to check  roofs for loose sheeting/nails and do the necessary repairs. 

 

A High Surf Advisory & Small-Craft Warning is in effect from 12:00 noon 28th June, 2022 

Deterioration in sea-conditions is expected, with swells of 3.0m to 4.5m (10 to 15ft) likely. A  High-Surf Advisory is issued when breaking wave action poses a threat to life and property  within the surf zone. 

A Small-Craft Warning means in this case, that wind-speeds of 25 to 35 mph (40 to 55 km/h) and or seas greater than 3m (10ft) will be affecting the marine area. Large waves and  dangerous rip-currents will create unsafe conditions for small-craft operators, particularly on the  northern and eastern coastlines. These conditions may become even more adverse at times of  high tide. Therefore, small-craft operators should exercise extreme caution, possibly  securing their vessels by this evening. Sea-bathers are also advised to stay out of the  water. 

High-tide times are expected near 5:04 pm today (Tuesday) 

5:41 pm Wednesday 

6:18 pm Thursday 

This high wind advisory and small craft warning may be extended if conditions warrant. Prepared by Mr. Gregory Cato
