Weather Outlook for Dominica and the Lesser Antilles

Valid from: 12:00 PM on Tuesday, January 22, 2019

A high pressure system will be the dominant feature across the Lesser Antilles during the next 24 to 48 hours, generating a brisk trade wind flow. Low level clouds moving within this wind flow are expected to result in occasional cloudiness and scattered showers across the area within the period. 

Moderate seas are expected during the next 24 hours with waves peaking up to 7.0 feet. A further deterioration in sea conditions is expected as the week progresses, with waves expected to peak near 10 feet by Thursday. Small-craft operators and sea-bathers, particularly on the east coast, should remain vigilant and should exercise caution.
