Severe weather information

The Barbados Meteorological Services is currently monitoring the progress of a series of low pressure systems over the Atlantic.

Of immediate interest is the closest system which was centered about 700 miles east of the Lesser Antilles at 2 p.m. this afternoon.

At present model guidance is suggesting some slow development is possible over the next few days as it tracks westward at 17 to 23 mph.

Regardless of development, some moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain, scattered thunderstorms and occasional gusty winds are likely to spread across Barbados by tomorrow afternoon into early Friday.

Rainfall accumulations of one to two inches (25 – 50mm) are possible with the passage of the system.

Due to the already saturated nature of the soils a Flood-Watch/Warning may be required at short notice.

Marine conditions are also expected to deteriorate with sea swells increasing to 2.0 – 2.5 metres.

    Come on guys. Pay attention and keep safe. I like this guys weather reports. And we know that all of these storms which come off the African coast will follow the same passage of the slave ships from the Trans Atlantic slave trade via that east wind.

    Jeremiah 18:17
    ‘Like an east wind I will scatter them Before the enemy; I will show them My back and not My face In the day of their calamity.'”
