Weather Outlook for Dominica and the Lesser Antilles

Valid from: 6:00 AM on Sunday, September 20, 2020

A trough system associated with Hurricane Teddy together with moisture being pulled from the south with the wind flow, can be expected to produce cloudiness, scattered showers and a chance of isolated thunderstorms, across the area during today. Shower and thunderstorm activity could become moderate to heavy at times accompanied by gusty winds.

People in areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rocks should exercise caution during today. A flood watch or warning may be issued at short notice, if conditions warrant.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Wilfred is located about 1285 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and is expected to dissipate by Tuesday. 

Swells generated by Major Hurricane Teddy are expected to continue to affect the area during the next 24 hours with heights up to 8.0ft along eastern coastline by tonight. A Small Craft Warning and a High Surf Advisory remains in effect. Small craft operators should exercise extreme caution. Sea bathers should stay out of the water. An increase in swells generated by Teddy will begin to affect the west coast by Tuesday.
