Met Office issues update on area of disturbed weather

August 28th, 2022

The Barbados Meteorological Services continues to closely monitor an area of disturbed weather embedded within the monsoon trough about 1560 KM or 970 miles east of Barbados. The system has been tracking west to west north-westward around 25-30 km/h ( 15-20 mph ) over the past 24 hours.

Although convection increased around the system this morning with some waning this afternoon, it remains disorganized and is not expected to undergo any rapid development as it moves very slowly westward to west-northwestward around 5-10 mph over the next few days.

FORECAST TRACK:
Extended forecast tracks remain consistent over the past 48 hours in a projected track well north of Barbados by Friday this week.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
The BMS is strongly recommending that the public listens for daily updates over the next few days.

REMINDERS:
We are entering the peak of the hurricane season and the public is asked to ensure that their hurricane preparedness checklists have been completed and to be ready.

The next update will be issued by this department at 6 pm on 29th August 2022.
