October 2, 2022
First of two tropical waves expected to affect St Vincent and the Grenadines from tonight

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Services is monitoring the progress of two westward moving tropical waves located just east of the Windward Islands and over the central Atlantic.

A release from the The Meteorological Services Department issued at 12 noon, today October 2, said the  tropical wave closest to the region is expected to generate cloudy skies, occasional moderate/heavy showers and a chance of isolated thunderstorms across Saint Vincent and the Grenadines from tonight into Monday.

Residents and motorists in areas prone to flash flooding and landslides or near rivers and streams should be vigilant.

Meanwhile, the axis of the second tropical wave which is of special interest, was located near  longitude 47° West, or about 960 miles east southeast of the Windward Islands and moving westward at 15 to 20 mph.

Current model guidance suggests that there is some potential for development   before it reaches the Windward Islands between the middle and the end of this week.

Residents are advised to keep informed on the progress of this system in the upcoming days.
