On the southern edge of the Atlantic High Pressure System, weak unstable conditions linger across our islands, with a few showers possible again this evening and tonight. An occasional film of haze is possible across our area this afternoon and during Monday due to varying concentrations of Saharan dust. A thick plume of Saharan dust is expected across the islands by late Tuesday, decreasing visibility across St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) with moderate-haze and thickening overnight with very poor visibility by Wednesday…Be Alert.

Moderate-fresh (25 - 35km/h) breeze across our islands, turn east south-easterly tonight. Wind speeds gradually decrease, becoming gentle-moderate (15 - 25km/h) by late Tuesday.

Marine conditions are slight to moderate in open water, with swells nearing 1.2m on western coasts and 2.0m on eastern coasts of SVG. Swell heights are gradually falling, to range 1.0 - 1.5m across our islands by Tuesday…However, small craft operators should exercise caution for reduced/very poor visibility due to thick Saharan dust-haze expected across our area during Tuesday night and Wednesday.
