System conducive for slow development

The Barbados Meteorological Services (BMS) continues to monitor the progress of a broad area of low pressure located over the central tropical Atlantic near 10N 42W or 1900 km (1181 miles) east of Barbados at 11 am today.

Environmental conditions remain conducive for some slow development of the system over the next few days as it moves westward to west-northwestward across the central Atlantic.

Current model guidance indicates the system may pass north of Barbados sometime over the coming weekend.

Regardless of development, the public is urged to continue to monitor the progress of this system and the updates provided by the Barbados Meteorological Services over the coming days.

There are no watches or warnings issued for Barbados on this system.

Mariners who venture far east are advised to closely monitor the progress of this system over the next few days.

The next update will be at 11 a.m. on Wednesday. (PR/SAT)
