The Eastern Caribbean Forecast valid up to 8am Saturday 20th January 2018.

Weather Synopsis: A weak surface to low level trough will generate unsettled weather conditions across the Windward Islands, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago today and tonight. Cloudy spells and periodic showers are likely beginning early this morning. Meanwhile, moisture and instability associated with a frontal system between Cuba and Hispaniola will generate similar weather conditions across Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands mainly this morning. Elsewhere, the Atlantic high pressure system will dominate, keeping shower activity to a minimum, with at most a moderate chance of showers possible.

Winds: East to east-northeasterly ranging between 11 to 26 km/h or 6 to 14 knots.

Seas: Moderate with wave heights 1.2 to 1.8 meters or 4 to 6 feet. Cautions remain in effect for small craft operators and sea bathers against above normal sea conditions.
