UPDATE: Severe Weather Bulletin

Barbadians can expect moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain, thunderstorms and gusty winds today, as the island continues to be impacted by a tropical wave.

Authorities have therefore not issued the all-clear and all businesses and schools remain closed until further notice.

Below is the full bulletin issued by the Barbados Met Service at 6 a.m. Wednesday.    


The tropical disturbance approaching the island continued to show signs of gradual development during the night. A reconnaissance aircraft will investigate the system again this morning, and it could be upgraded to a tropical depression or tropical storm at this time.


This system has been affecting the island throughout the course of the night with some widely scattered light to moderate showers and occasional gusty winds. Conditions are expected to further deteriorate during the morning, with some pockets of moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain, thunderstorms and gusty winds. Once the centre of the system passes the island during the early morning, sustained wind speeds 25 to 35 mph/ 45 to 55km/h with higher gusts, are expected to spread across the island.


Rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches (50 to 100 millimeters) are still possible, with sea swells of 3 to 4 meters (10 to 13 feet) in open water. This will prompt a warning for small craft and sea bathers into tomorrow.
