Showers Expected As Shearline Moves Southward

Weak instability lingers across our islands and a few showers are likely tonight, followed by dry/stable conditions across St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) during Wednesday.

A few showers can be expected again late Thursday into Friday as a shear-line moves southward across our islands and the Western Atlantic High Pressure System builds, bringing an increase in wind-speeds.

Light (‘< 10 km/h) north north-easterly breeze across our islands could become calm at times. A gradual increase is expected during Thursday, becoming fresh (30  40 km/h) by evening and further increasing to strong (50 km/h) breeze by Friday and continuing into the weekend…Persons in wind-exposed areas should be alert/prepared; as higher wind gusts nearing gale (50  60 km/h) strength are possible.

Slight to moderate sea-conditions are across our islands; with north-easterly swells near 1.0 m on western coasts and 1.5 m on eastern coasts.

Increase in wind-speeds could cause sea-conditions to become moderate (1.5 m – 2.5 m) by Thursday night and warnings may be issued for small-craft operators and sea-bathers during Friday…conditions could deteriorate with gusty winds and rough sea-conditions (near 2.0 m on western coasts and 3.0 m on eastern coasts) increasing further during Friday night and continuing during the weekend.
