BMS warns of choppy conditions

November 14, 2023

The Barbados Meterological Services is advising the public of choppy sea conditions later this week.

It says the choppy conditions, expected mainly along the northern and western coastlines, are currently forecast from as early as Thursday, November 16, 2023.

They are predicted to peak over this weekend, with some improvement from Monday, November 20 to Tuesday, November 21.

This deterioration of sea conditions will be due to two low-pressure systems in the Northern Atlantic which are expected to generate northerly sea swells of 2.0m to 3.0m (6.5 to 10 feet) in open water.

Small Craft and High Surf Advisories may be issued later this week for this swell event, and marine users and those with interests along the western coastline in particular, should monitor marine forecasts, alerts and other information issued by the BMS in the coming days.

The next update will be issued at noon on Wednesday, November 15, 2023.
