Met Office issues marine advisory

April 28, 2024

The Barbados Meteorological Services is advising the public of the potential for a deterioration of marine conditions along the western coastlines of Barbados associated with an area of low pressure located in the central North Atlantic.

There are no watches or warnings in effect for Barbados on this system.

Choppy sea conditions mainly along the western coastlines of Barbados stretching from Six Mens, St. Peter, southward to Brighton Beach are expected as early as Tuesday, April 30. These conditions are predicted to persist through to Thursday, May 2, with improvement expected thereafter.

Northerly swells of 1.0m to 1.5m are likely to impact the western coastal waters of Barbados during this swell event.

The public is advised to use beaches with a lifeguard present.
Marine users are encouraged to monitor the BMS, DEM and GIS websites and their respective social media pages along with the local media networks for further updates over the coming days. Additionally, advice and warnings provided by the National Conservation Commission should be followed.
