Weather Outlook for Dominica and the Lesser Antilles

Valid from: 12:00 PM on Wednesday, December 6, 2023

A high pressure system has established itself across the area. This is expected to result in a relative reduction in moisture levels across the island during today. Breezy conditions will be maintained. However, increased moisture levels will be maintained across the islands to the south of Dominica. By later tonight, some of this moisture is expected to spread northward across the island.

Moderate seas are expected over the next 24 hours with waves peaking near 8ft. Small craft operators and sea-bathers on the western, northern and eastern coast are advised to continue to exercise extreme caution as a small craft warning is in effect.
