|The Eastern Caribbean Forecast valid up to 8am Sunday 18th April 2021.|
Weather Synopsis: Settled conditions are expected across the area due to the presence of a relatively dry and stable atmosphere. High pressure is the dominant weather feature at this time providing sinking air over the area and due to the persistent dust in the air as well as low moisture levels, this will act to restrict shower activity. Skies will be mostly fair becoming partly cloudy occasionally.
Winds: Southeast today for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands becoming east-southeast by tonight. From Anguilla down to Martinique the wind will be east-southeast and for the rest of the area the wind will be easterly. Speeds will range from 17 to 31 km/h or 10 to 20 mph with lighter spells for some areas.
Seas: 0.9 to 1.8 metres or 3 to 6 feet for the northeast Caribbean and 1.2 to 2.1 metres or 4 to 7 feet from Martinique southwards to Trinidad. An increase to 2.4 metres or 8 feet is forecast for the open waters around Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago towards the end of the forecast period.
