Tropical Wave Approaching SVG-Flood Warning Downgraded

SVG MET OFFICE – A broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave is approaching the islands. This coupled with a favourable upper-level environment increases the chance of some moderate showers and thunderstorms across Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Thus, the flash- flood warning has been downgraded to a flash- flood watch until further notice. A Flood-Watch is issued when conditions are favourable and there exists the possibility of flooding during the watch period.

Approximately 50mm (2 inches) of rainfall accumulations are possible within the next 24 hours period.

Residents and motorists in areas prone to flooding and landslides or near rivers and streams should continue to exercise caution.
