Mostly fair conditions will be experienced this afternoon across Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. In addition, an increase in low level moisture will result in cloudy skies and showers tomorrow morning. SVG is likely to experience some scattered showers into Monday. However, by Monday afternoon, mostly fair conditions are forecast, persisting into Tuesday.

Showers with gusty conditions, cleared to fair and breezy conditions by mid-morning. The Atlantic High Pressure System is dominant and cloud patches within its brisk wind-flow could bring occasional showers across St.Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) this weekend. Saharan dust particles are also being transported by this wind-flow, to reach our area Sunday with slight haze and possibly thicken to reduce visibility with moderate haze Sunday night/Monday.

Fresh to occasionally strong (30 - 45 km/h) northeasterly trades should continue this weekend. Sea conditions are moderate,

A wake cloud developed on the west coasts of Barbados Wednesday afternoon bringing showers across St.Vincent and some Grenadine islands into the night, which dampened the possibility of a ‘dry-spell’. A dry-spell is a succession of at least 7 consecutive dry-days and a dry day is a 24 hour period during which the rainfall total is less than 1 mm.

The Central Atlantic High Pressure System is dominant and shallow cloud patches moving along with its brisk wind-flow could converge across St.Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) maintaining a few showers later today and Friday into the weekend.

Hazy and breezy conditions can be expected across St. Vincent and the Grenadines over the next few days as Saharan dust of varying intensities continues to affect the Eastern Caribbean. Only brief isolated showers are anticipated over the islands as dry mid levels coupled with the aforementioned dust particles continue to inhibit any heavy shower activity.

The presence of dust haze and a relatively dry and stable atmosphere are likely to suppress any significant shower activity across Saint Vincent and the Grenadines during the next 72 hours.

A few scattered showers are possible late tonight into tomorrow morning as a weak surface trough moves across Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. However, limited moisture is associated with this trough, and an increase in the Saharan dust will inhibit any significant shower activity. Over the weekend into Monday is forecast to be mostly fair and hazy.

A few isolated showers are possible across Saint Vincent and the Grenadines during the next 72 hours as shallow moisture lingers across the island chain.

A few showers moved through the Grenadines today and on the Leeward side of mainland St.Vincent during this afternoon. Cloudiness and a few showers could linger across St.Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) tonight, with hazy conditions Thursday. Dust concentrations could thicken and result in poor visibility late Friday into Saturday. February usually have minimal rainfall; towards heart of our ‘dry season’.

Moderate to fresh (20 - 35 km/h) breeze varying between east northeast and east southeast can be expected by Thursday, gradually increasing to fresh (30 - 40km/h) breeze late Friday into Saturday.

Brief isolated showers are likely across St.Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) by this evening. Increased moisture and instability could concentrate south of the Grenadines during Wednesday, with scattered showers across the Grenadine Islands. Shower activity could spread to St. Vincent by evening and decrease to isolated showers Thursday, mixed with slight hazy conditions. Reduced visibility with moderate haze can be expected by Friday evening.

Gentle to moderate (10 - 25 km/h) breeze varying between east northeast and east southeast, should gradually increase to moderate (20 - 30 km/h) by Wednesday

The atmosphere will remain relatively dry, with model guidance indicating only a few brief isolated showers possible across the mainland during the next 72 hours. Wednesday into Thursday, unstable conditions are likely to result in a few scattered showers mostly over the extreme southern portion of the island chain.
