Met Office Issues Warning For A Medium Chance Of Flooding And Landslide Over The Next 12 to 24 Hours

Following the issuing of a flash flood advisory on Sunday resulting from the passage of a trough, forecasters at the Met Office are currently monitoring an area of disturbed weather across the southern Windward Islands.

The monitored system is identified as a near surface trough which is within an area of deep-layered moisture and pockets of instability.

As a result, the State of Grenada is expected to experience cloudy to overcast conditions this afternoon into tonight with rain, some heavy, and isolated nighttime thundershowers.

Consequently, the Met Office has issued a warning for a medium chance of flooding and landslide over the next 12 to 24 hours.

Additionally, a small craft advisory is in effect.

The likely impacts are

  • Street and river flooding
  • Rockfall
  • Downed trees

The National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) encourages road users, marine operators and people living in vulnerable areas to take all the necessary precautionary measures to remain safe.
