TROPICAL WAVE AFFECTING THE TERRITORY

7TH October 2018

The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services indicates that a tropical wave in combination with a low pressure area located close to Hispaniola is creating unsettling weather conditions across the territory.  As a result, conditions will be partly sunny with showers. The Met Service has also indicated possible rainfall amounts of 5 to 10 mm or 0.20 to .40 inches are possible during this forecast period.

Winds: East-southeast at 15 to 30 kilometres per hour or 8 to 16 knots.

Seas: Long, low swells with significant wave heights of 1.5 to 2 metres or 5 to 6 feet. A high surf advisory remains in effect for north and east facing beaches.

The DDM will continue to monitor weather conditions and provide updates accordingly.
