Weather Outlook - 30th August 2022 (6 pm)

A broad area of disturbance in the central Atlantic will more than likely influence the weather pattern across Saint Vincent and the Grenadines during the next 72 hours. The tropical wave associated with an area of low pressure has a moderate chance of becoming a tropical depression over the next two days. It is not heading towards Saint Vincent and the Grenadines but is forecast to remain mainly offshore as it passes to the north east of  the islands. For Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, expect a light northerly wind regime as the disturbance moves closer, which will result in generally warm and humid conditions. Model guidance indicates the highest chance of some showers around Wednesday night into Thursday.

Tonight: Fair to occasionally cloudy, warm and slightly hazy conditions are forecast with a low chance of  brief isolated showers.

Wednesday:  Similar conditions to the previous day. However, the chance of showers increases towards the night.

Thursday: Partly cloudy to cloudy with a high chance of a few showers.

Friday: Friday morning should be mostly fair and warm with a chance of localised activity.

Winds will blow from the north east, at 15km/h-25 km/h, decreasing in speed around Wednesday night into Thursday to roughly 5km/h - 15km/h. Winds might become calm at times around Thursday. This light wind regime will continue into Friday, becoming southerly winds by Friday afternoon. 

Seas will remain slight to moderate in open waters with swells peaking at 1.0m on the western coasts and 2.0m on the eastern coasts. Presently, there is no marine advisory in effect. In addition, haze intrusion should thin out around Thursday.
