Mass of Saharan dust could create hazy conditions on Friday

The Atlantic High Pressure System is expected to weaken across our islands by Wednesday, being replaced by unstable conditions with occasional cloudy skies and a few scattered showers across St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG), possibly increasing late Thursday.

A mass of Saharan dust could create hazy conditions across our area during Friday, as shower activity gradually decreases. A few showers could linger during Friday night.

Fresh to strong (‘~30 – 45 km/h) east north-easterly trades across SVG tonight could become moderate to fresh (‘~20 – 35 km/h) during Wednesday, turning east south-easterly by late Thursday. East north-easterly trades could return Friday evening.

Small craft-operators and sea-bathers are being warned due to above normal sea-swells and gusty winds…East north-easterly sea-swells across SVG are ranging 1.5 to 1.8 m on western coasts and up to 2.8 m on eastern coasts…Gradual fall in swell heights could start during Wednesday, with slight to moderate sea-conditions (1.2 – 2.0 m) expected by Wednesday night.
