The Eastern Caribbean Forecast valid up to 8am Tuesday 13th November 2018.

Weather Synopsis: An area of disturbed weather associated with an approaching tropical wave will further contribute to the already unsettled atmosphere across the region. Mostly cloudy skies, showers and thunderstorms are likely across the Leeward Islands southwards to Trinidad and to a lesser extent the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. However, day time heating could produce heavy downpours and afternoon thunderstorms across Puerto Rico. Across the Leeward Islands showers at times may become moderate to heavy and with the land already saturated, additional rainfall could easily cause streets and low lying areas to flood and may even result in mudslides for some areas. Residents are therefore advised to exercise caution during these adverse weather conditions.

Winds: East-northeasterly from the British Virgin Islands to Puerto Rico and east-northeast to east southeast across the rest of the Island chain. Speeds will range between 9 to 28 km/h or 5 to 15 knots with lighter spells across Puerto Rico and Trinidad.

Seas: 1.5 to 2.1 metres or 5 to 7 feet dominated by easterly swells reaching 1.5 meters or 5 feet.
