Barbados Weather Report - A sea-bather caution issued for August 15

Some brief showers today should cool things down after the high temperatures experienced yesterday.

Forecasters with the Barbados Meteorological Service at Charnocks, Christ Church say the Atlantic high-pressure system is expected to be the dominant feature and will be affecting the island this morning into tonight.

As a result, it will be fair to partly cloudy, hazy and windy with a few brief isolated showers.  

Winds will be blowing from the East at between 25 to 40 km/h with higher gusts, and while no change in direction is anticipated, later in the day speeds should drop to between 25 to 40 km/h.

Similarly, small craft operators and sea bathers have been urged to exercise caution as seas will be moderate in open waters with swells between 2.0m to 2.5; dropping later in the evening to between 1.5m and 2.5m.

The sun rose over Barbados at 5:46 a.m. and it will set around 6:20 p.m.

Yesterday temperatures reached a high of 32.1°C, with a slight drop to 27.4°C overnight.
