A severe-thunderstorm warning has been issued by Barbados Meteorological Services and will be terminated at 6 p.m. or sooner if conditions warrant.

A severe-thunderstorm warning is issued when significant lightning activity is expected in a short period (generally less than six hours) or is already occurring within the warning area.

Lightning activity is expected. The Met Office said there is increased likelihood of power outages if lightning strikes power utility infrastructure.

The Met Office also said there is possible danger to life due to significant lightning activity.
