|The Eastern Caribbean Forecast valid up to 8am Wednesday 11th December 2019.|
Weather Synopsis: A strong high pressure system located in the northern Atlantic is the dominant weather feature, producing a steep pressure gradient over the area resulting in moderate to fresh breeze across the Eastern Caribbean. Notwithstanding, a series of weak low level troughs generated by surges in the wind field could see periodic showers particularly for the islands in the north east Caribbean. In addition to this, these breezy conditions will see a rise in wave heights causing sea conditions to be choppy and challenging for small craft operators.
Winds: Northeast with speeds ranging between 22 to 37 km/h or 12 to 20 knots with occasional higher gusts.
Seas: 1.8 to 2.8 metres or 6 to 9 feet except for Barbados whose seas will range between 2.1 to 3.1 metres or 7 to 10 feet . The higher heights however, are for the eastern side of the islands.
