Barbados Weather Report: Daytime heat gives way to cool night, Oct 12

As Barbadians set about their usual Saturday routine, they’ve been greeted by temperatures that feel on the far end of the 30s.

According to forecasters at the Barbados Meteorological Service, it is currently 30.0⁰C but feels like 37⁰C, with a 22km/h breeze coming from the south-east. They say this is a result of a weak ridge pattern which has been affecting the island and should change later this evening as a tropical wave approaches the region.
