Met Office Update: System poorly organized

August 9, 2021

The Barbados Meteorological Services continues to monitor an area of disturbed weather associated with an elongated area of low pressure located some 145 miles or 235 kilometers to the east of Barbados at 5:00 am today.

During the night, there has been no significant change to the overall structure of the system. Convection continues to fluctuate and the system remains elongated and poorly organized.

Some slow development of this system is possible as it moves towards the west-northwest near 10 to 15 mph.

Current forecast tracks indicate that the center of the area of low pressure should pass north of Barbados late Monday evening.

The next update will be at noon today or sooner if conditions warrant.

There are no watches or warnings at this time.
