Low-level instability To Affect The Island Over The Weekend

A few showers are likely tonight, followed by fair conditions as a pocket of dry air moves across St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).

Low-level instability and cloudiness could increase Friday evening and occasional showers with isolated thunderstorms are possible during Saturday.

The instability could linger during Sunday and more showers with thunderstorm activity can be expected Sunday night into Monday, as a tropical wave approaches the islands.

Gentle and occasionally moderate (~10 – 25 km/h) south-easterly breeze is across our islands. Wind directions could turn east north-easterly Friday night and gradually increase during Saturday with possible gusts near 40km/h Saturday night. Easterly wind-flow is expected during Sunday.

Northerly sea-swells are across our islands, with slight (near 1.0 m) conditions on western coasts and slight to moderate (near 1.8 m) conditions on eastern coasts. On eastern coasts, swell heights could fall near 1.5 m by Friday afternoon, with north-easterly swells during Sunday.
