A tropical wave will begin to affect SVG

(SVG MET) –  A layer of Saharan dust encompasses a tropical wave approaching the Eastern Caribbean. While the majority of the showers associated with this wave is concentrated mostly to the south, dust interaction may limit the intensity.

Nevertheless, instability ahead of this wave could still trigger some moderate showers early Saturday morning.

Models are further suggesting a cessation in shower activity during Saturday, but by nightfall, and into early Sunday morning, some light to moderate showers with low chance of isolated thunderstorms are likely across St. Vincent & the Grenadines.

Partly cloudy skies with some scattered showers are likely on Monday as patches of moisture trails the wave. Pleasant(fair) conditions should return by mid afternoon Monday.
