Issued: 12:00 noon Thursday, 17th September, 2020
Hurricane Teddy is passing to the northeast of the region, moving northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h). On its present track, the system does not pose any direct threat to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).
However, due to its presence and
movement, a light wind regime has developed across the islands. This light wind regime coupled with day time heating can result in localized moderate showers and
isolated thunderstorms activity across SVG this afternoon.
Thus, a Flash-Flood Watch is in effect for St. Vincent and the Grenadines from 12:00 noon today, September 17th 2020 until 6:00 pm today, September 17th, 2020.
Residents and motorist in areas prone to flooding and landslides or near rivers and streams should exercise caution.
A Flood-Watch is issued when conditions are favourable and there exists the possibility of flooding during the watch period.
This flood watch may be upgraded to a warning if conditions warrant.
