Flash flood watch for Barbados

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 does not mean flooding will occur.

A tropical wave is expected to bring rainfall accumulations of one to two inches (25 to 50mm) in moderate to heavy showers across Barbados from this afternoon into tonight.

Isolated thunderstorm activity is also expected this afternoon and therefore the thunderstorm alert level has been raised to Yellow (Be Aware).

This message will be updated at 6 p.m. Monday, or sooner if conditions warrant. (PR/SAT)
