A flash-flood warning in effect for Barbados from 12:30 a.m. Thursday until 6 a.m., or sooner, if conditions warrant.

A tropical wave is affecting the island and is expected to generate moderate to heavy showers with maximum rainfall accumulations of 25 to 75mm.

A flash-flood warning is issued when rapid flooding due to heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time (generally less than 6 hours) is occurring or is imminent in the warning area.

The Met Office says severe thunderstorm and high wind warnings are also in effect until 6 a.m. (PR/SAT)
