Share post:

The Barbados Meteorological Services on Monday issued the final message on Tropical Storm Philippe, saying it posed no direct threat to the island.

Tropical Storm Philippe was located near 17.3N 45.5W, about 1580km (982 miles) east of the region at 11 a.m. today.

Over the past 24 hours, Philippe’s organisation remained constant with bursts of convection displaced to the east of the low-level centre.

The maximum sustained winds were around 50 mph with a minimum central pressure of 1000mb.

On its current track, the system will pass well northeast of Barbados by Wednesday, September 27. Apart from a week of light winds and overall warm daytime and nighttime temperatures, Tropical Storm Philippe poses no direct threat to Barbados.

Following Philippe, there is a small area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave around 30W.

Environmental conditions are forecast to allow the slow development of this feature, possibly to a tropical depression during the late part of the week, while it also passes northeast of the island. (PR/SAT)
