The flash-flood warning has been extended for the entire island.

In a statement, the Barbados Meteorological Services (BMS) said this warning will be terminated at  6 pm or sooner if conditions warrant.

A flash-flood warning is issued when rapid flooding due to excessive rainfall in a short period of time (generally less than 6

hours) is occurring or is imminent in the warning area.

Unstable conditions due to the presence of a low-level trough system is affecting the island. Activity associated with this feature is now

expected to spread across the entire island; generating overcast skies, heavy downpours, and possible thunderstorms.

So far an inch of rainfall was recorded in the Speightstown area, and further accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are

expected across Barbados.
