"The tail end of a tropical wave is currently affecting Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, increasing the chances of light to heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms across the country during Wednesday night into Thursday.

Due to the already saturated nature of soils across the islands, residents and motorists in areas prone to flooding and landslides or near rivers and streams should continue to exercise caution. A southerly wind flow is likely to draw equatorial moisture to our islands over the next few days. This should allow for cloudy skies and it also increases the chance of showers as the week closes.

Gentle to moderate(15-30km/h)easterly to east south easterly trades will cross the islands within the next 72 hours, slightly increasing (near 35km/h) near areas where showers are concentrated. Seas are currently moderate in open water with swells peaking up to 1.5m on western coasts and ranging between 2.2m to 2.5m on eastern coasts. Small craft operators and sea bathers should exercise caution for above normal sea swells and gusty winds. In addition, varying concentrations of Saharan dust haze will continue to cross the islands within this forecast period."
