Severe weather bulletin

The Barbados Meteorological Services is monitoring the progress of a strong tropical wave about 780 miles/ 1255 km to the east of Barbados.

The system is moving towards the west-northwest at about 23 to 29 mph/37 to 47 km/h, with an accompanying area of low pressure centered along the wave axis near 9N 46W.

Environmental conditions are conducive for some gradual development over the next 24 – 36 hours, and a tropical depression could form by the time the system approaches Barbados, late tomorrow Tuesday into early Wednesday morning.

Regardless of development some moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain, thunderstorms and gusty winds are expected to spread across the island late Tuesday into Wednesday.

Rainfall accumulations of 3 to 5 inches (75 to 125 millimetres) are possible along the path of the system.

In addition, swells of 4 to 5 metres (12 to 15 feet) and winds gusting to storm force of greater than 39 miles per hour (63 km/h) are also likely.

    People that live in low-lying area should look for higher grounds.
