Weather Outlook 2nd February 2019 (12 noon)
Occasional low level shearlines/troughs with few scattered showers moving along with easterly trade-winds continue to cross the island chain. Dry conditions remain above 850mb (4800ft) which limits shower activity. The relatively dry lower-level trough area is stalled just east of the island chain, but should cross the region during Sunday with intermittent pulses of dry stable conditions. Few showers
should be converging across the region, behind the trough area on Tuesday.
Expect moderate (20 - 30km/h) breeze with varying directions with the passage of a lower level shearline/trough this weekend. As the trough crosses the islands Sunday into Monday, occasional reductions to gentle breeze can be expected during afternoons into evening.
Slight to moderate conditions (1.0 – 2.0m), are expected across St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG). Wave heights could peak near 1.2m on the west and near 1.8m on the east coasts, but lower heights (0.6 - 1.5m) are expected with slight conditions during Sunday and Monday, gradually rising across SVG by Tuesday.
Although no significant dust concentrations are expected across our area, very slight haze may be noticeable on our horizon by late Monday into Tuesday….JMCD
