Barbados Meteorological Services Overnight Recap:

The Atlantic high-pressure system was the dominant feature across Barbados and the eastern Caribbean.

A measure of stability associated with the aforementioned feature ensured cloud development was shallow and shower activity was generally light. It should be noted however, that BMS’ radar did detect a few moderate echoes throughout the night.

No rainfall was recorded at the Charnocks, Christ Church station with the highest accumulation across the island being 2.2mm near Welches, St Thomas.

Further south, across Trinidad and Tobago, an area of low-level convergence sparked a few showers across there. Across the Guianas, cloudiness with a few showers gave way to clearer skies as a ridge pattern was dominant overnight.

Wind speeds across the region were generally light to moderate with speeds peaking at 15 knots at the BMS headquarters in Charnocks, Christ Church as well as St Lucia.
