Weather system affecting island
RESIDENTS OF BARBADOS are being advised to remain on the alert and to take all necessary precautions in light of current weather conditions.
According to the Barbados Meteorological Services, a passing tropical wave is interacting with an “upper-level low and trough” over the Eastern Caribbean, resulting in pockets of moderate to heavy showers, thunderstorms and occasional gusty winds.
In a special weather bulletin issued at 11 a.m., director Hampden Lovell said “analysis is suggesting that these conditions are likely to persist well into the afternoon and into tonight”. (NB)
