As the tropical wave near 63W continued westwards instability trailing over Barbados and the central section of the region generated cloudy skies and light to moderate scattered showers. Favourable upper-level conditions also allowed for isolated thunderstorm activity across the area. The 12-hour rainfall accumulations from 6pm til 6am here in Barbados ranged from 11.8mm here at Charnocks in Christ Church to a maximum of just over an inch (26.8mm) near Hope land, St. Philip. Other rainfall totals such as 22.6mm, 20.8 and 18.2 were also recorded in Mile and a Quater, St. Peter, Groves, St. Philip and Alleynedale Hall, St. Peter respectively. After midnight Barbados reported a gradual improvement while the islands of the Leewards and northern Windwards remained under similar weather conditions.
Eastern Caribbean Outlook:
Instability generated by moisture and instability trailing the wave at 63W will maintain light to moderate convection across the Leewards and northern Windwards where upper-level conditions will remain conducive for convective enhancement. During the night a shear line is expected to shift southwestwards while a low-level trough approaches the southern Leewards and northern Windwards. Elsewhere, a weak ridge pattern will be the dominant feature with occasionally cloudy skies anticipated.
