4th August 2018 – Synopsis: Moisture and instability ahead of a tropical wave expected to move across the area on Sunday is likely to generate some unsettled weather across the islands. However, this wave is engulfed in a surge of dust from the Sahara Dessert which could inhibit significant shower activity. These hazy conditions will also result in reduced air quality and visibility and residents with respiratory ailments are asked to take the necessary precautionary measures.

Weather today: Partly sunny and hazy with a 30 percent or a low chance of showers.

Weather tonight: Partly cloudy and hazy conditions with a 40 percent or moderate chance of showers mainly after midnight.

Winds: Easterly with speeds ranging between 20 to 30 km/h or 11 to 16 knots.

Seas: Slight to moderate with significant wave heights not exceeding 1.5 metres or 5 feet.

Sunset today:  6:51 pm.

Sunrise tomorrow:  5:58 am.
