Cloudy skies moved over St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) this afternoon, with periods of light rain. A tropical wave is crossing the Windward Islands, with an area of disorganized showers expected across SVG tonight into early Friday.
Pockets of moderate/heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms could interrupt slight hazy conditions. The chance for development into a depression/storm as the area moves over the islands is very low (near 0%).
Residents and motorists in areas prone to flooding and land-slides, or near rivers and streams should remain alert.
Reduced shower activity is expected during Friday afternoon and isolated showers are possible over the weekend.
Gentle to moderate (~15 – 30 km/h) north-easterly breeze could turn south-easterly by early Friday, increasing to fresh (up to ~40 km/h) during Friday.
A gradual reduction is expected by evening, becoming gentle (~10 – 20 km/h) at times over the weekend. Direction could turn to east north-easterly during Sunday and increase to fresh by night-fall.
Slight to moderate sea-conditions are across our islands, with swells up to 1.0 m on western coasts and up to 1.8 m on eastern coasts with east-south-easterly swells, slight reduction (1.0 – 1.5m) may be noticeable by Saturday.
