The Barbados Met Office monitoring weather conditions

The Barbados Meteorological monitoring a strong high pressure system.

Marine model data over the past few days have been consistent in forecasting a deterioration of sea conditions from late Thursday 9th January, 2020 and into the follow week.

A strong high pressure system centered over the central North Atlantic is forecast to generate easterly to east north-easterly surface winds of 20 – 25 knots (37 to 46 km/h), and easterly to east north-easterly swells peaking near 3.5m (11ft).

If this current trend continues, a High-Surf Advisory and Small-Craft Warning will be issued for Barbados on Wednesday 8th January, 2020. Large waves and dangerous rip-currents during this time could create unsafe conditions for small-craft operators, particularly on the eastern, northern-eastern and south-eastern coastlines of Barbados.

These conditions could become even more adverse at times of high tide.

All residents should pay special attention for any updates from the Barbados Meteorological
