Small craft advisory for Barbados


Share post:

A small craft advisory is in effect for Barbados for above normal swell heights today.

A small craft advisory is issued when sustained winds of 20 to 25 knots and/or sea swells of 2.5 to 3.0 metres (8 to 10 feet) are affecting or forecast to affect the marine area within the next 36 hours.

High wind speeds across the central Atlantic are expected to cause a deterioration in sea conditions, particularly across the eastern coast of Barbados from November 21 to 23.

Swell height are expected to be moderate to rough in open water, ranging from two to three metres (7 to 10 ft). (PR/SAT)
