The Barbados Meteorological Services continues to closely monitor an area of disturbed weather associated with an elongated low pressure of 1008MB about 980 km or 610 miles east-northeast of Barbados.
Satellite imagery has shown that the system has become slightly more organized this afternoon.
The BMS says although conditions remain marginally conducive, the system is not expected to undergo any rapid development.
Extended forecast tracks have remained consistent over the past 72 hours with a projected track well north of Barbados by Friday, September 2nd, 2022 as it slowly moves westward to west-northwestward around 5 to 10 mph.
The system is not expected to directly impact Barbados, however wind speeds across the island are forecast to decrease. This is likely to trigger moderate to heavy afternoon showers over some sections of the island during the next two days. Therefore the BMS is strongly recommending that the public listens for daily updates.
It is also reminding the public that as we are entering the peak of the hurricane season, to ensure that hurricane preparedness checklists have been completed and to be ready.
The next update will be issued by the BMS at 6:00 p.m. tomorrow, September 1st, 2022.
