BMS closely monitors tropical wave


The Barbados Meteorological Services (BMS) is closely monitoring the progress of a tropical wave located near 41 degrees west at 8 a.m.

This is about 2000 (km) or 1250 miles east of Barbados.

The BMS however said no watches or warnings are in effect for Barbados at this time.

“At the present moment, the system remains disorganized due to the unsupportive surrounding environmental conditions,” it said in a weather information statement.

The forecasters added: “As it stands, model guidance suggests the system could undergo slow development as it approaches the northern Windwards by late Wednesday.

“The system is forecast to track west-west northwest at 20 miles per hour (32km/h). High winds associated with this system are forecast to pass north of Barbados late Wednesday.”

The BMS will issue its next update on Tuesday, June 29 at 11 a.m.
