A flash flood warning will be in effect for Barbados from 8 p.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Saturday.
A flash flood warning is issued when rapid flooding, due to heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time, (generally less than six hours), is occurring or is imminent in the warning area.
Feeder bands associated with Hurricane Tammy are beginning to generate heavy to intense showers across some sections of the island.
This is expected to continue tonight and into early tomorrow morning. Rainfall accumulations of one to three inches with isolated higher amounts are likely during the next few hours.
This alert may be discontinued sooner if conditions warrant.
The public is urged to continue to monitor the progress of Hurricane Tammy and monitor updates from the Barbados Meteorological Services and follow recommendations provided by the Department of Emergency Management. (PR/SAT)
