Tropical wave is ‘well south of Barbados’

There are no tropical storm watches or warnings in effect for Barbados as the Barbados Meteorological Services (BMS) continues to monitor Potential Tropical Cyclone #2.

The Met Office said at 11 p.m. on Monday, the system, centred near 8.7N 52.8W or about 875 km (545 miles) southeast of Barbados, continues to struggle to get itself better organised.

Convection has been sporadic throughout the early part of the night as it continues to track westward near 17 mph (28km/h). Conditions appear favourable for further slow development and a tropical depression could form during the next few days as the centre tracks well south of Barbados.

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

A small craft warning remains in effect for above normal swells (2.5 to 3.0m) primarily for the eastern and southern coasts of Barbados up until 6 p.m. Wednesday.

BMS is urging the public to be ready and to remain on the alert for messages from this department and the Department of Emergency Management throughout the whole of Tuesday.

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