Barbados Weather Report - Tropical Storm Isaac still posing threat

Here is a look at the weather in Barbados for September 11, according to information from the Barbados Meteorological Services. 

A weak ridge pattern is the dominant feature across the island today, causing it to be fair to partly cloudy with a few isolated showers. 

Tonight should be fair to partly cloudy with a few isolated showers at first, becoming partly cloudy to occasionally cloudy with some scattered showers after midnight, as a rain band from Tropical Storm Isaac will begin to affect the island.

At 5:00 am Issacc was located about 770 miles (1240 kilometres) east of Barbados. The MWT Office said:

"On this track, the center of Isaac is expected to pass about 150 miles (240 km) north of Barbados on Thursday. However, an outer band associated with Isaac will bring some scattered showers, isolated thunderstorms and occasional gusty winds to Barbados on Wednesday. 

"As the system travels westward into the eastern Caribbean Sea, more organized convection trailing Isaac is expected to affect Barbados, bringing moderate to heavy showers and occasional gusty winds well into Friday. Sea conditions are also forecast to deteriorate as the system traverses the area with swells of 3.0 to 3.5m (10 to 11ft) expected over open water."

The current temperature is 29°C and winds are generally from the east at 10 - 25 km/h. Seas are slight to moderate in open water with swells from 1.0 to 1.5m.

Sunrise was at 5:48 am and sunset is expected at 6:02 pm.
