Small craft and high surf advisories remain in effect for Barbados for above normal easterly swell heights.
A small craft advisory is issued when sustained winds of 20 to 25 knots and/or sea swells of 2.5 to 3.0 meters (8 to 10 feet) and/or reduced visibility (less than 10 km but greater than 5 km) are affecting or forecast to affect the marine area within the next 36 hours.
A high surf advisory is issued when breaking wave action poses or is forecast to pose a threat to life and property within the surf zone during the next 36 hours.
A continuation of strong surface winds associated with a robust Atlantic high-pressure system has resulted in a deterioration of sea swells within Barbados’ coastal and near-shore marine areas.
Moderate to rough easterly sea swells ranging from 2.0 to 3.0 meters (7 to 10 ft) in open water are expected from Sunday into Tuesday.
These advisories will be in effect until 6 p.m. Tuesday, but may be terminated earlier if conditions warrant. (PR/SAT)
