Cloudy to overcast skies, light to heavy showers, periods of rain and isolated thunderstorms are
anticipated this evening into Tuesday as a broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical
affects our Islands. In addition, occasional gusty winds may accompany shower activity. Rainfall
accumulations of 50 – 100mm (approximately 2-4 inches) with isolated higher amounts in
mountainous areas are possible by within the next 48 hours
As a result, the weather advisory that was already in effect for a low risk of flooding for St. Vincent and
the Grenadines has been upgraded to a Flash Flood watch and will remain in effect until further notice.
Residents and motorists 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 flash-flood watch may be upgraded to a warning if conditions warrant.
