Met Office monitoring system in the Atlantic


Share post:

The Barbados Meteorological Service (BMS) is closely monitoring a tropical wave and an associated area of low pressure located near 37W south of 17N.

This is about 2 460 km (1 530 miles) east of Barbados at 11 a.m. and does not pose a direct threat to the island at this time, so no watches or warnings are in effect.

Activity associated with this feature has become less organisd over the past six hours. However, conditions are expected to become more favourable for development during the next few days as the system moves westward to west-northwestward.

Current model guidance indicates that the system will pass well north of Barbados sometime early next week.

Members of the public are advised to continue to monitor updates issued by the BMS on this feature.

The next update will be at 11 a.m. on Friday, or sooner if conditions warrant. (PR/SAT)
