More Saharan Dust To Affect SVG

Moderate to fresh (`~ 25  35 km/h) east north-easterly trades could occasionally increase near 40 km/h across our islands. Further increase is likely during Monday, with strong breeze and higher gusts by evening (45  55 km/h)…Be alert in wind-exposed areas.

Moderate sea-conditions with east north-easterly swells are across our islands, ranging 1.5 m  1.8 m on western coasts and up to 2.5 m on eastern coasts…Small-craft operators and sea-bathers should continue to exercise caution.
