Two low-pressure systems to bring choppy seas

Choppy sea conditions, mainly along the northern and western coastlines of Barbados, are currently forecast from as early as Thursday.

These conditions are predicted to peak over this weekend with some improvement from Monday into Tuesday, says the Barbados Meteorological Services (BMS).

This deterioration of sea conditions will be a result of two low-pressure systems in the Northern Atlantic which are expected to generate northerly sea swells of 2.0m to 3.0m (6.5 to 10 feet) in open water.

Small craft and high-surf advisories may be issued later this week for this swell event.

Marine users and people with interest along the western coastline, in particular, should monitor marine forecasts, alerts and other information issued by the BMS in the coming days.

The BMS will issue the next update at noon on Wednesday. (PR/SAT)
