The Eastern Caribbean Forecast valid up to 8am Thursday 18th October 2018.

Wx: Moisture and instability in the atmosphere over the Eastern Caribbean and trailing a tropical wave that has entered the Eastern Caribbean Sea will maintain a high chance of showers across the region. Some heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected across the Windward Islands, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago today. While the chance of showers will remain high across the Southern Caribbean tonight, an airmass becoming low on moisture and instability will reduce the chance of showers to moderate under partly cloudy skies across the Leeward Islands west to Puerto Rico.

Winds: Easterly at 22 to 37 km/h or 12 to 20 knots with higher gusts in showers mainly around Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands..

Seas: Slight to moderate with significant wave heights 1 to 2.1 metres or 3 to 7 feet. A small craft advisory remains in effect for the waters on the north and east sides of the Leeward Islands and the British Virgin Islands..
