Weather Outlook - 29th October 2020 (6pm)
Generally cloudy to overcast skies with intense showers under gusty conditions are forecast for SVG tonight and tomorrow. Earlier, there were reports of flash-flooding across sections of the mainland. In addition, over 2 inches(~50mm) of rainfall were recorded at some stations. Models suggest an additional 3 inches(~75mm) of rainfall is anticipated with higher amounts in mountainous areas, therefore a flash-flood warning was put in effect for St. Vincent & the Grenadines from 4pm today until 6am Friday 30th October. Residents and motorists in areas prone to flooding and landslides or near rivers and streams should continue to be vigilant and take the necessary precautionary measures to protect life and property.
A moderate to occasionally fresh wind flow (20km/h-40km/h) will move across the islands, decreasing in speed (15km/h-35km/h) from tomorrow. The flow will be predominantly from the east, veering to east south east on occasions, becoming east north east by Saturday.
Sea conditions will remain moderate to rough in open waters, with swells peaking to 3.5m on the eastern coasts, and ranging between 1.5m-2.0m on the western coasts during the next 24 hours. Small craft operators and sea bathers should be prepared for above normal sea swells and gusty winds. In addition, slight haze intrusion is present, resulting in moderate air quality.
