St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The Met Office at the Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw International Airport is currently monitoring weather conditions in St Kitts and Nevis and other parts of the Caribbean.
At 7:00 am on Wednesday morning, June 29, Senior Meteorological Officer Mr. Elmo Burke shared with WINN FM the Weather Bulletin for St Kitts and Nevis and other neighbouring islands valid until 8:00 am on Thursday, June 30.
Burke said the Weather Forecast for St. Kitts & Nevis is showing windy conditions which will continue to support brief cloudy spells and showers, as well as maintain hazardous sea conditions. Winds will be coming from the East at 16 to 26 mph with possible higher gusts to 35 mph and the seas will measure 2.1 to 3.1 metres or 7 to 10 feet. Therefore, a small craft warning remains in effect. The Weather today, (June 29) will be partly cloudy to cloudy with a 70 percent or a high chance of showers.
According to Burke, the Eastern Caribbean will experience cloudiness and showers, associated with potential Tropical Cyclone Two. This he said will continue across the Windward Islands, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago, throughout the day into the night.
Meanwhile, windy conditions are expected to dominate the Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Skies across these islands will be partly cloudy to cloudy with a high chance of showers.
In addition, Burke shared that the area of disturbance that was previously forecasted to approach the Northern Islands later this week still has a low chance of developing. Nonetheless, the St Kitts Met Office will monitor the system as it approaches the island chain. He added that at minimum, it may generate unsettled weather on Saturday.
Burke assured that additional information will be provided later this week as it approaches the island chain. Individuals are encouraged to listen to local radio stations for updated weather forecasts. This is the hurricane season in the tropics and individuals are advised to be in a state of preparedness.
