Rain and thunderstorms expected with tropical wave

The Barbados Meteorological Services continues to monitor a number of tropical waves in the Atlantic.

The tropical wave of immediate interest was near 55W or 460 km (290 miles) southeast of Barbados at 8 a.m. It remains disorganised with an elongated area of low pressure to the southeast of Barbados.

Current model guidance is now suggesting the tropical wave will bring some moderate to heavy showers, rain and thunderstorms from Wednesday night and into Thursday.

Members of the public are advised to download the BMS insight app for Android or CAP.CAP for significant weather alerts and continue to monitor the BMS website and social media pages for official weather updates.

They should also prepare in case this alert elevates to orange or red.

This is the final information statement on this tropical wave, however, due to the already saturated nature of some areas across the

island, flood watches or warnings may be required at short notice. (PR/SAT)
