Weather Outlook for Dominica and the Lesser Antilles

Valid from: 6:00 AM on Tuesday, February 20, 2018

A high pressure system remains the dominant feature maintaining strong winds across the Lesser Antilles. Low level clouds moving with this wind flow will continue to produce cloudiness and scattered showers across the area during the next 24 hours. 

Meanwhile, a dissipating frontal boundary moving southward is expected to generate an increase in moisture and instability across the island chain by Thursday into Friday.

Rough seas are expected during the next 24 hours with waves peaking up to 10.0 feet. A further increase to peak between 12.0 to 15.0 feet is anticipated by late Wednesday into Thursday. A small craft warning is in effect for above normal seas and high winds. Small craft operators and sea bathers, particularly on the east coast, are advised exercise extreme caution.
