More sunshine come Saturday
The rainfall that Barbados has been experiencing in the past week should ease up by tomorrow, according to the Barbados Meteorological Service.
Yesterday, meteorologist David Best said that while Barbados experienced a broad area of low pressure affecting most of the islands in the island chain, resulting in showers, “we are expecting this pattern to continue into tomorrow. But by Saturday we are seeing an improvement”.
“The wind should start to strengthen, the atmosphere would start to dry out and then we will be back to normal island conditions,” he said.
Best said today would be fair to partly cloudy with some scattered afternoon showers and possible isolated thunderstorms, mainly over central and northern districts.
Showers in various parts of the island yesterday were sometimes accompanied by lightning and loud thunder. Most people were prepared for the conditions and travelled with their rain gear. (RL/AH)
