MID – UPPER LEVEL TROUGH MOVING ACROSS THE REGION UP UNTIL FRIDAY IS EXPECTED TO GENERATE SHOWERS WHICH ARE FORECASTED TO BECOME MORE INTENSE AND LONGER IN DURATION.
According to information received from the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Office at 12:00 p.m. today, a mid- upper level trough moving across the region up until Friday, is expected to generate showers which are forecasted to become more intense and longer in duration.
For the next 24 hours the Ridge of High Pressure will remain the dominant feature bringing brief occasional showers to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
However, showers are forecasted to become more intense and longer in duration as a mid- upper level trough move across the northern portion of the region up until Friday. Residents should be vigilant during this time.
Winds will continue to be brisk moving across Saint Vincent and the Grenadines at 18 – 30 miles/hour with gusty winds in the vicinity of showers.
Sea conditions are therefore expected to remain moderate to rough in open waters, and choppy near shore, therefore, sea operators, sea bathers or any other marine interest should exercise caution.
The HIGH-SURF ADVISORY and SMALL-CRAFT WARNING remains in effect for St. Vincent and the Grenadines until 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday 21st December, 2016.
The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO), through the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Office will continue to monitor the situation.
