Next Day weather discussion

Barbados Meteorological Service’s (BMS) data showed surface-to-low-level moisture on the southwestern periphery of a building surface-to-low-level ridge pattern located over Barbados and the southern Windward Islands.

Additionally, some dryness was noticeable in the lower mid-to upper-level atmosphere 15 over the region. As a result, the areas mentioned above may experience some isolated rain with clear skies and clouds.

Surface to low-level moisture will spread across the island chain from the equatorial region.

As a consequence, continued wet conditions will continue across the region. In due course of time, this activity spread across the Leeward Islands after midday.

Weather: Saturday

A surface-to-low-level central Atlantic ridge pattern will strengthen across Barbados and the eastern Caribbean.

However, short wave troughs at the upper level over our area are likely to disturb fair weather conditions.

Due to troughs, instability is expected to remain across the central and north western Caribbean due to a series of low-level troughs.
