Here is a look at the weather according to the Barbados Meteorological Services.

Today and tonight should be generally cloudy and breezy with occasional scattered showers, some of which may be moderate to heavy, rain and possible isolated thunderstorms. This as the combination of an easterly wave and the I.T.C.Z (Inter Tropical Convergence Zone) are affecting the island today, while the I.T.C.Z will continue to affect the island tonight.

Winds are generally from the east-southeast at 20 to 40 km/h with higher gusts near showers, while seas are moderate to rough in open water with swells from 2.0m to 3.0m. A small craft warning is therefore in effect for above normal sea swells.

Barbados Meteorological Services has not been discontinued the Flood-Warning and a Small-craft Warning issued at 6:00 am yesterday, which stated that:

"Fluctuations in the intensity of the showers, scattered thunderstorms along with occasional gusty winds are expected to persist for at least the next 24 to 48 hours. Rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches (50 to 100 mm) with isolated higher amounts are possible across the island as these systems linger over the area into early Wednesday".

Sunrise was at 5:49 am and sunset is expected at 5:39 pm.
