Flash-flood watch for Barbados

Date:

Share post:

A flash-flood watch is in effect for Barbados from noon until 6 p.m. Sunday.

A flash-flood watch is issued when heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time (generally less than six hours) could result in flash flooding within the watch area. It does not mean that flooding will occur.

A low to mid-level trough is maintaining light wind speeds across the island. This, in combination with a moist low-level environment, has begun to generate some localised activity over the central portions of the island.

As the afternoon progresses, the showers are expected to spread across the island. Accumulations of one to two inches in moderate to heavy showers are likely.

Residents and visitors should be prepared for strong runoff from higher elevations.

This watch may be terminated sooner if conditions warrant, says the Barbados Meteorological Services. (PR/SAT)
