Slight haze is possible across our area late Wednesday, but unstable conditions could maintain occasional showers during Thursday as another tropical wave quickly crosses the islands with a wind surge.

Upper level support is expected to increase the chance for significant showers with thunderstorm activity late Thursday into Friday.

Moderate to fresh (~ 20 – 35 km/h’) north-easterly trades could turn east south-easterly Wednesday and gradually decrease to gentle breeze (temporarily) during the

afternoon. North-easterly fresh (~ 30 – 40 km/h) winds can be expected during the night, with directions turning easterly Thursday and occasionally strong (~ 40 – 50 km/h’) breeze can be expected by Thursday afternoon, with directions turning east south-easterly Friday.

North north-easterly sea-swells are across our islands, near 1.5 m on western coasts and near 2.0 m on eastern coasts of SVG.

Swell heights are expected to rise during Wednesday, becoming rough with swells near 2.0 on western coasts and near 3.0 m on eastern coasts of SVG by night-time…Small-craft operators and sea-bathers should exercise caution for above normal east north-easterly sea-swells and occasional gusty winds…expected to start falling Sunday.
