October 5th 2018 – The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services states that an upper level trough (a weather feature that usually brings clouds, showers and shift in winds) in combination with atmospheric instability, will produce generally cloudy skies across the area. These conditions will heighten the chance for showers over the next 24 hours.
Winds will be from the east at 19 to 30 km/h or 10 to 16 knots.
Seas will moderate with significant long period swells of 1.5 to 2.1 metres or 5 to 7 feet. High surf advisory remains in effect mainly along coastal areas north and east of the islands..
The Department of Disaster Management (DDM) will continue to monitor the systems and provide updates accordingly.
