Brace for rainy weekend

Bajans can brace themselves for more rain this weekend.

Acting Director of the Barbados Meteorological Services Hampden Lovell said in an advisory this evening at 5 that a tropical depression, the seventh since the Atlantic Hurricane Season started on June 1, was approaching the island.

“The centre of the depression was located near 13.7 N 43.8 W or about 1,100 miles or 1,770km to the east of Barbados. The depression is presently moving towards the west at about 20mph/32kmh and on its present track is expected to be in the vicinity of Barbados and the Lesser Antilles on Saturday.

“Maximum sustained winds are near 55kmh with higher gusts. Slow strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours and the depression could become a tropical storm on Friday. This department will start to issue advisories on this system from 11 a.m, tomorrow, Friday 10, 2012,” the advisory said.
