Weather Outlook 17th January 2020 (6 pm)
Pockets of dry air limited the chance for shower activity across St.Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) today, with slim chance for isolated showers tonight and during the weekend. Weak unstable conditions could move across our islands during Monday with a few showers.
Moderate (20 - 30km/h) east northeasterly breeze are across our islands, but the Atlantic High Pressure System could temporarily strengthen, resulting in increased wind speeds to fresh and possibly strong (30 - 45 km/h) Saturday night to Tuesday.
Slight to moderate (1.0 – 2.0m) northeasterly swells continue until Saturday. A deep-layered Low Pressure System in the North Atlantic is propagating large swells southwards and wave heights could be rising again Saturday night, becoming moderate to rough (2.0 – 3.0 m) Sunday night with northerly swells reaching coastal waters of SVG. Swells could be peaking near 3.5m (12 ft) during Monday on eastern coasts, with moderate to rough sea conditions before retreating during the afternoon on Tuesday 21st January, 2020. Large waves and dangerous rip-currents during could create unsafe conditions for sea-bathers and small-craft operators. Conditions could become more adverse at high tide times; Sunday 01:06 am and 01:18 pm, Monday 01:50 am and 02:32 pm and Tuesday 02:35 am and 03:54 pm. Advisories/Warnings may be necessary for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
