Weather Outlook for Dominica and the Lesser Antilles

Valid from: 6:00 PM on Tuesday, October 4, 2022

A tropical wave east of the Windward islands which is being monitored for development, presently has a low chance of development during the next 48 hours. This wave is expected to make its way across the islands tomorrow into Thursday. Regardless of development this system is expected to bring heavy rains and gusty winds across the islands to the south of the region. Most of the heavy rains are concentrated to the southeast portion of the system and away from Dominica at this moment. Some showers and occasional gusty winds are expected during the next 24 hours across the island. People in areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rock should be on the alert.

Moderate seas are anticipated during the next 24 hours with waves peaking to 8.0ft along the eastern coast tomorrow. A small craft advisory will be in effect for above normal sea swells. Small craft operators and sea bathers are asked to exercise caution.
