Tropical Wave To Affect SVG Tuesday Night Into Wednesday: Heavy Showers Forecast

On occasion, skies will get cloudy and a few shallow showers are likely over some portion of the country.

A tropical wave will approach the islands around Tuesday, to affect Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Model guidance is indicating a fair amount of moisture associated with this wave, therefore some moderate to heavy showers are forecast around Wednesday across SVG. In addition, haze intrusion across the islands is forecast to thin out around Tuesday.

Breezy conditions will be experienced across the island chain during the next 48 hours as the Atlantic high pressure system remains the dominant feature across the region.
