A flash-flood watch is in effect for western districts.

A flash-flood watch is issued when heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time (generally less than six hours) could result in flash flooding within the watch area. It does not mean that flooding will occur.

Light to moderate showers are expected across western districts this afternoon during localised activity. Maximum rainfall accumulations of one to two inches are likely, says the Barbados Meteorological Services.

The alert is valid until 6 p.m. Sunday, but may be terminated sooner if conditions warrant. (PR/SAT)
