June 27th, 2022

There are no tropical storm watches or warnings in effect for Barbados.

This was revealed in the latest weather bulletin from the Barbados Meteorological Services.

That full statement follows:

Hurricane Hunter did not find a closed center associated with the area of disturbed
weather.

There was a small area of storm force winds found by the aircraft well to the northwest of where the potential tropical cyclone center was initiated.

At 5:00 pm potential tropical cyclone #2 was centered near 8.6N 50.9W or about 1071 km (665 miles) east-southeast of Barbados.

There are NO Tropical Storm Watches or Warnings in effect for Barbados.

The system remains disorganized and convection has been sporadic throughout the day as it continues to track westward near 19 mph (30km/h). Conditions appear favourable for further slow development and a tropical depression could form during the next few days as the center tracks well south of Barbados. Regardless of development, BMS is urging the public to be ready and to remain on the alert for
messages from this department and the Department of Emergency Management tonight and Tuesday.

Excess rainfall, severe thunderstorm and wind alerts remain elevated to yellow level for tomorrow, Tuesday 28th June 2022. This means that the public should be aware that there is the POSSIBILITY of adverse weather conditions on Tuesday. The small craft advisory will be upgraded to a small craft warning at 6:00 pm today, Monday 27th June.

Reconnaissance aircraft and GOES16 Satellite Imagery has revealed an open circulation associated with the tropical wave.

Environmental conditions improved marginally throughout the day and will continue to slowly improve overnight giving the system a chance to develop a closed circulation before reaching the Southern Windward Islands.

As a reminder, kindly follow official sources of alerts for Barbados issued by the Barbados Meteorological Services through the CAP.CAP or the BMS insight app.

The next update will be issued at 11:00 PM Monday, 27th June 2022.
