A flash-flood watch is in effect for Barbados until around noon, but could be upgraded to a warning at short notice.
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.
A tropical wave is generating cloudy skies with moderate to heavy showers, and thunderstorm activity is possible throughout the day.
Wet conditions will persist throughout the weekend, with current model guidance suggesting that most of the intense convection associated with the wave may occur tonight.
Rainfall accumulations of one to four inches and possibly isolated higher amounts are forecast over the weekend. (PR/SAT)
