The anticipated shower activity which was forecast for Barbados today, Thursday, did not happen.
And the Flood watch for the island was discontinued just after two in the afternoon.
But Acting Director of the Barbados Meteorological Services, Sabu Best, is standing by the information given by his department.
While noting that meteorology is not an exact science, he says it was a watch and not a warning meaning that the excess rainfall was possible.
Mr. Best explained that the conditions simply do not materialize as they were forecast.
