SVG is currently feeling the effects of a Tropical Wave

The St.Vincent and The Grenadines Meteorological Service advises of "Scattered moderate showers and chance of isolated thunderstorms .... as a tropical wave and an upper level trough affect the islands. Showers are forecast to become more intense behind the wave around late Wednesday/early Thursday morning. Gusty winds will accompany these showers as well.  Towards Friday, the upper level trough will move away from the vicinity, reducing the chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms." The combination of weather formations will be joined on the weekend by another incoming Tropical Wave bringing "chance of shower activity and thunderstorms increasing towards Saturday night into Sunday."

NEMO joins with the Met services to advise residents of flood prone, low lying areas, those living near streams and rivers, seafarers and motorists to exercise caution. 

As we continue to clean up post volcanic eruption it is important to note that ashfall can be re-mobilized as mudflows. Red Zone access remains restricted and all are to maintain caution as we rehabilitate our communities. 

According to the 72 hour outlook, our multi hazard situation on island will also see "a thick layer of Saharan dust" that "will continue to linger across the region, and can possibly limit the intensity of the showers especially over the weekend"
