Weather Information Statement for St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG)

Issued: 12:00 noon Friday, 18th August, 2023

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Services continues to closely monitor the progress of three (3) weather disturbances located over the Central and Eastern Tropical Atlantic.

Of immediate interest is the system closest to the region which is presently located several hundred miles to the east-southeast of the SVG. The movement is generally west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.

The latest model forecast guidance suggests that although this system is predicted to be a strong tropical wave as it moves across SVG and the Eastern Caribbean over the weekend, the probability of development into a Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm is very low (30% chance) at this time.

Regardless of development, pockets of moderate to heavy showers, thunderstorm activity, strong gusty winds as well as deterioration of the sea conditions are expected across SVG from late Saturday and during Sunday. Due to the already saturated nature of the soils from recent rainfall events, flash-flood watches or warnings may be required within the upcoming days.
