‘Strong Tropical Wave’ expected

July 1, 2024

The Barbados Meteorological Services (BMS) continues to closely monitor a tropical wave located along 41W, about 1200 miles / 1960 km to the east of Barbados moving westward at 15 to 20mph, at 4 p.m., today, Monday, July 1, 2024. This is separate and distinct from Hurricane Beryl.

This feature will affect Barbados sometime on Wednesday, July 3, 2024, and during this time excessive rainfall, gusty winds and a deterioration of marine conditions are likely.

The public is 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.

This tropical wave has an associated area of low pressure. The feature is currently poorly organized. Over the next few days, environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for some slow development as the wave tracks westwards across the Atlantic and is expected to be a strong tropical wave when it moves into our area.

This information statement was issued at 4 p.m. today and will be updated at 9 a.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, July 2, 2024.
