Barbadians warned of possibility of hazardous weather next week

June 24th, 2022

Barbadians are being warned of the possibility of hazardous weather conditions within the next few days.

This from the Barbados Meteorological Services, which is continuing to closely monitor the progress of a tropical wave, which at 5:00 p.m. was located near 32/33W or about 3020KM (1875 miles) east of Barbados.

In its latest statement, the BMS says the system has generally remained disorganized throughout the day as it tracks westward near 15 to 20 mph (24-32km/h). A general westward to slightly north of westward motion with an increase in forward speed around Monday is expected.

Some slow development is expected over the next few days and a tropical depression could form early to mid next week.

The BMS says regardless of development, it is urging the public to be ready and remain on the alert for messages from the department and the Department of Emergency Management over the weekend and in particular very early next week.

It has elevated marine, excess rainfall and wind alerts to the yellow level for Tuesday, June 28th, 2022.

The BMS says its next update will be issued at 6:00 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, June 25th, 2022.
