Flash Flood Watch issued

October 25, 2023

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Barbados.

This alert is issued when heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time (generally less than 6 hours) could result in flash flooding within the watch area. It does not mean that flooding will occur, but it is possible.

Unstable conditions affecting the island are generating moderate to heavy showers across the island. One to two inches of rainfall with isolated higher amounts are likely throughout the day.

Key Message:
-Soil erosion on bared or scarred land surfaces
-Water settlements on roads and fields which may lead to commuting delays and possible isolated diversions in and out of the city
-Increases in water levels of existing water bodies (e.g. ponds etc.).
-Marginally invasive excess water on roads, fields, storm drains/water canals and on property.

This alert message is valid from 9:15 a.m. today Wednesday, October 25, 2023, and will be updated at noon or sooner if conditions warrant.
