Weather Outlook for Dominica and the Lesser Antilles

Valid from: 12:00 PM on Wednesday, May 24, 2017

A high pressure system is the dominant feature across the area generating a brisk trade wind flow with a relatively dry atmosphere expected during the next 24 to 48 hours. Hazy conditions will be maintained during the next 24 hours resulting in a reduction in visibility.

Meanwhile, a westward moving tropical wave located in the Central Tropical Atlantic is expected to approach the area by early next week.

Moderate seas are expected during the next 24 hours with waves peaking near 8.0 feet. Small craft operators and sea bathers, particularly on the east coast, should exercise caution.
