Barbados under flash-flood watch

A flash-flood watch is in effect for Barbados.

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, but it does not mean that flooding will occur.

A tropical wave is currently affecting Barbados and rainfall accumulations of up to 25mm have been recorded across parts of the island.

These unstable conditions will continue to affect the island into tonight, generating pockets of moderate to heavy showers. A further 25mm to 50mm is possible during the next 12 hours.

This watch is in effect until about 6 p.m., may be updated sooner if conditions warrant. (PR/SAT)
