Weather Outlook for Dominica and the Lesser Antilles

Valid from: 6:00 PM on Thursday, August 13, 2020

A surface to low-level trough is expected to produce scattered showers across parts of the Lesser Antilles, from tonight and into tomorrow. From late afternoon, an increase in shower activity is expected across the southern Windward Islands as Tropical Storm Josephine approaches the Leewards.

At 5pm, Josephine was located near 14.5N, 50.6W or about 716 miles east south east of Dominica. On its present track, the centre of the system is expected to pass to the north of the Leeward Islands on Saturday.  An increase in shower and possible thunderstorm activity is expected across Dominica mainly from Saturday afternoon into Sunday. Residents should continue to monitor the progress of this system.

Moderate seas are expected during the next 24 to 36 hours with waves peaking to 7.0ft. An increase in wave height to near 10.0ft is projected for Saturday.
