More rain in the forecast

A flood watch is in effect for Barbados from 5 p.m. Friday through 6 p.m. Saturday.

A flood watch is issued when the conditions are favourable for flooding within the next 48 hours, but it does not mean that flooding will occur.

Unstable conditions associated with a confluent pattern will affect the island throughout tonight into Sunday, November 12, 2023.

Therefore, wet conditions are forecast for the weekend with maximum rainfall accumulations of 40.0 to 75.0 mm likely in occasional heavy to intense showers with gusty winds.

Conditions on the ground are already saturated and additional shower activity may cause flooding across the island.

This may be updated sooner if conditions warrant. (PR/SAT)
