Weather Outlook - 31st August 2022(6 pm)
A few light to moderate showers are likely tonight into early Thursday as shallow moisture patches ahead of a disturbance generates occasional cloudy conditions. Meanwhile, warm conditions are anticipated on Thursday and Friday with episodes of sporadic shower activity. Models continue to suggest that the aforementioned disturbance will maintain a west northwestward track away from SVG and towards the adjacent waters of the northern Leeward islands. A band/shearline is forecast to emanate from the feature and trigger some unsettled weather conditions across our islands on Saturday. The SVG Meteorological Service will continue to provide the necessary updates as time progresses.
Gentle to moderate(15-25km/h) north easterly trades will cross the islands before becoming light and variable on Thursday and Friday. The wind direction should shift to south easterly from Friday afternoon and speeds could revert to moderate from Saturday. Seas will be slight to moderate in open waters with swells peaking near 1.0m on the western coasts and ranging between 1.0m to 2.0m on the eastern coasts. Varying concentrations of Saharan dust haze would continue to cross the islands and thin out by early Saturday.
