Low Level Trough To Bring Showers Wednesday

PR – A low-level trough system has its axis along 60-degree West, approximately 30 nautical miles (nm) East of Grenada.

This trough is embedded in the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and supports moist, unstable conditions bringing scattered moderate convection along either side of the Zone.

Currently, this system is bringing moisture northward towards the southern Windward Islands from the general area of Trinidad and Tobago allowing for cloudy conditions and scattered showers across the State of Grenada during the nighttime. There is also a medium chance of lightning, thunder, and gusty winds especially overnight.

Therefore, the Meteorological Office has issued warnings for a low chance of flooding and landslides in vulnerable areas and for agitated seas with above normal North Easterly swells.

Forecasters are also monitoring an approaching tropical wave expected to cross the state of Grenada on Thursday evening into night.

At 2pm, the axis of the Tropical Wave was near 51/52 West, extending from 20 North southward, 687 nautical miles (nm) east of Grenada. It is moving westward at 11mph.

NaDMA encourages all citizens to exercise caution when moving around.
