BMS monitoring large plume of dust haze

April 16, 2024

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

While there are no advisories or warnings in effect for Barbados currently, a Dust Haze Advisory may be issued from either Wednesday evening or Thursday morning.

The BMS says as a result of the approching plume, skies may appear slightly yellowish during the day and a reduction in visibility due to dust haze is likely over land and marine areas from as early as late Friday. These conditions are predicted to persist this weekend and into early next week.

The public is encouraged to monitor the BMS and other official sources for further updates over the coming days. Additionally, advice provided by the Ministry of Health and Wellness should be followed.
