A few pockets of showers are likely across Saturday afternoon with a low chance of isolated thunderstorms. Residents and motorists in the red and orange zones near the La Soufriere Volcano should remain alert. Meanwhile, a surface to low-level trough approaches our islands and this could influence the weather conditions from early Sunday onward. The SVG Meteorological Services will continue to closely monitor the progress of this system and provide the necessary updates.
Light to moderate(10-25km/h) north easterly trades will cross the islands this afternoon and shift to east south easterly by late Sunday. A slight increase(near 30km/h) in speed is expected from Monday as the wind direction reverts to north easterly. Seas are forecast to be slight to moderate in open waters with swells peaking at 1.0m on the western coasts and ranging between 1.5m to 2.0m on the eastern coasts. In addition, slight concentrations of Saharan dust haze is anticipated within this forecast period.
