The Barbados Meteorological Services (BMS) says it is closely monitoring a large plume of dust haze in the eastern to central Atlantic.

Model guidance suggests that the thick concentrations will slightly weaken, however, dust concentrations are expected to increase across Barbados and the marine area from as early as Sunday, May 5.

This event is expected to last no later than Wednesday, May 8 and there are currently no advisories or warnings in effect for Barbados.

As a result of the dust haze, skies may appear slightly yellowish during the day and a reduction in visibility is likely over land and marine areas from as early as Sunday.

The public is encouraged to monitor official sources for more information.

Additionally, the public is encouraged to follow the advice provided by the Ministry of Health and Wellness.

This information statement will be updated tomorrow at 5:00 p.m.
