Small craft advisory issued

December 6, 2021

A small craft advisory is in effect for Barbados for above normal swell heights due to moderate winds.

This alert message is valid from 12 pm today, December 6 2021, and will be terminated at 6 am December 7 2021 or sooner if conditions warrant.


A small-craft advisory in this case is issued when sustained winds of 20 to 25 knots are affecting the marine area within the next 36 hours.

The Atlantic high pressure system is generating fresh breezes of 20 to 25knots (35 to 45 km/h) across the marine area, generating moderate swells of 2.0 to 2.5 meters ( 7 to 8 ft) and increasing.

All marine craft operators should exercise extreme caution.
