Weather Outlook 9th July 2021 (6 pm)
A few showers are crossing our islands, triggered by low-level clouds moving along with the trade-wind flow. Saharan dust concentrations are varying and hazy conditions are expected to thin-out across our area during this weekend, as a tropical wave approaches by Saturday. Increased cloudiness with scattered showers and thunderstorm activity are likely across St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) during Sunday. A few showers could linger on Monday, intermixing with moderate haze across our area.
Moderate to fresh (25 – 35 km/h) east north-easterly trades could gust near 45 km/h across our islands tonight. Stronger gusts (up to 55 km/h) are likely during Sunday, as a
wind-surge trails the tropical wave…Be alert in wind-exposed areas.
East north-easterly swells range between 1.0 m to 1.5 m on western coasts with slight to moderate sea-conditions and up to 2.0 m on eastern coasts of SVG. Temporary rise in swell heights can be expected Sunday, to peak near 1.8 on western coast and 2.5m on eastern coasts by night-fall…Small craft-operators and sea-bathers should exercise caution for above normal sea-swells and gusty winds. Swell heights are expected to retreat by late Monday.
