Weather update: expect strong winds

February 15th, 2022

A Small-Craft and High-Surf Advisory remains in effect for Barbados valid from Tuesday 15th until Thursday 17th February 2022.

Strong winds associated with the Atlantic High-Pressure System are forecast to trigger a deterioration in sea conditions over the duration of Tuesday 15th February 2022 through Thursday 17th February 2022.

A plume of moderate to thick Saharan dust haze has blanketed Barbados this morning. These conditions will continue to significantly reduce visibility across the Barbados’ marine area, today Tuesday 15th February 2022.

Large open water swells can be hazardous to some vessels and operation of smaller vessels can be difficult at times due to large swells. Additionally, marine users should stay close to shore, particularly if GPS is not in use on the vessel.
