A high-surf advisory and small craft warning take effect tomorrow

Local forecasters have issued a high-surf advisory and a small-craft warning for Barbados that will take effect from 6 p.m. tomorrow until 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 31.

According to the Barbados Meteorological Services,  a high pressure system moving across the northwestern Atlantic will generate surface winds between 37-47 miles per hour and large north easterly swells peaking between 10 to 13 feet, which are forecast to begin affecting the Eastern Caribbean late on Saturday.

The Met Office warns that large waves and dangerous rip currents will create unsafe conditions for small-craft operators, and these conditions may become even more adverse at high tide.

Sea bathers are also advised to stay out of the water.

    All surfers please acknowlege this weather advisory. Mr Chris Hill you may have a bird’s eye view but be careful with sky-lark play with those kind of wind parameters!
