According to information received from the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Services, the flash flood watch for Saint Vincent & the Grenadines has been discontinued as of 12:00 noon Wednesday, 29th July, 2020.

An elongated area of low pressure is located about 245 miles west north west of Saint Vincent & the Grenadines. Although the disturbance is moving away from the Leeward Islands, it should dominate the weather pattern across SVG over the next 36 hours as it makes its west north-westwards track from the island chain. Light to Moderate showers, occasional breezy conditions and the possibility of a few isolated thunderstorms exists across Thursday, 30th July, 2020. Model guidance suggests a weak low-level trough should approach the island chain on Friday 31st. Partly cloudy skies and a few sporadic showers are likely with no significant showers associated with the feature.

On Saturday, August 1st, 2020, humid conditions are anticipated as light south easterly winds cross the island chain allowing for the possibility of afternoon localized conditions.

Winds will be generally from the south south west (SSW) becoming occasionally breezy (~35km/h) into tonight. Fresh to strong (30-40 km/h) south easterly trades will persist across Thursday 30th, while a gradual decrease in speeds would take place as the weekend approaches.

Presently, sea conditions are moderate to rough (1.5m-2.8m). There will be a gradual deterioration especially on the eastern coasts of up to 3.0m by nightfall. Small craft operators and sea-bathers are asked to exercise caution. Conditions can become slight to moderate (1.2m to 1.5m) in open water as early as Friday night.
