Heavy showers/isolated Thunderstorms Forecast For SVG This Weekend

Over the next few days, Tropical Storm Teddy will continue its northwest track at 12mph (19km/h) over the Atlantic, and though the system is forecast to intensify around Thursday, TS Teddy poses no direct threat to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).

Nevertheless, its presence and its north westward movement will allow for a light wind regime to develop across Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Similar weather conditions experienced today is  forecast for tomorrow.

However, the light wind regime coupled with day time heating will increase the chance of isolated convective activity.

From Friday, a light southerly wind flow will allow for moisture to move over SVG, as TS Teddy, which would have strengthened by this time, continues on its north-westward track. Therefore, moderate to heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms are forecast for late Friday night into Saturday across SVG. 

Sea conditions are forecast to slightly deteriorate from around Thursday with northerly swells moving along the eastern coasts. In addition, slight haze intrusion is possible within this forecast period.
