Forecasters continue to monitor strong tropical wave


St. Vincent and the Grenadines (iWitness News) – Forecasters said Wednesday that the weather in St. Vincent and the Grenadines will be mostly cloudy and windy with occasional moderate showers and a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms as tropical wave approaches the Windward Islands.

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Services said it continues to monitor the progress of the strong tropical wave.

At 2 a.m. Wednesday, the axis of the tropical wave was located along longitude 57 degrees west, or about 270 miles (430 kilometres) southeast of the Windward Islands and moving westward at 15 – 20 mph.

The latest model guidance suggests that environmental conditions remain favourable for gradual development of the system, and there is a high chance (70%) that a tropical depression could form during the next few days.

Additionally, the model guidance suggests that most of the intense activity associated with the system will pass to the south of SVG on Wednesday into Thursday. However, rainfall accumulations of up to 50 mm (2 inches) with isolated higher amounts are still possible.
