Share post:

Small craft and high surf advisories are in effect for the northern, eastern, and southern coastal and marine areas of Barbados until 6 p.m. Sunday.

A small-craft advisory is issued when sustained winds of 20 to 25 knots and/or sea swells of 2.5 to 3 metres (8 to 10 feet) and/or reduced visibility (less than 10 km but greater than 5 km) are affecting or forecast to affect the marine area within the next 36 hours.

A high surf advisory is issued when breaking wave action poses or is forecast to pose a threat to life and property within the surf zone during the next 36 hours.

The central Atlantic high pressure system is generating moderate to brisk surface winds of 20 to 25 knots (37 to 47 km/h) over the marine area. These winds are expected to persist over the next few days and will allow for moderate to rough sea conditions, with swells ranging from 2.0 to 3.0 meters (7 to 10 ft) primarily on the northern, eastern, and southern coastal and marine areas of Barbados. (PR/SAT)
