Hurricane hunter to investigate weather system

A hurricane hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the tropical wave which was located 7N 47W, or about 1 480km (920 miles) east-southeast of Barbados at 5 a.m.

The system remains disorganised and convection was sporadic throughout the night as it continues to track westward near 17 mph (28km/h). This general westward speed increased during the night and is expected to continue today.

Conditions appear favourable for further development and a tropical depression could form in the next few days as the centre tracks south of the island.

The Barbados Meteorological Services continues to closely monitor its progress and is urging the public to be ready and to remain on the alert for messages from this department and the Department of Emergency Management today and tomorrow.

Excess rainfall, severe thunderstorm and wind alerts remain elevated to yellow level for tomorrow, Tuesday June 28. This means that the public should be aware that there is the possibility of adverse weather conditions on Tuesday.

A small craft advisory remains in effect for above normal sea swells until Wednesday evening.

The next update will be issued at 5 p.m. on Monday. (PR/SAT)
