An approaching Tropical Wave may continue to affect Dominica into Thursday with possible moderate to heavy showers and thunderstorm activity, increased wind speeds and possible flash flooding
An approaching Tropical Wave is expected to continue affecting the island into Thursday. Showers, which could be moderate to heavy at times and thunderstorm activity, together with an increase in wind speeds are expected across the Lesser Antilles, including Dominica, particularly during the afternoon.
People living in or traversing areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rocks should be on alert over the next 48 to 72 hours. A flood watch or warning may be required from this afternoon.
An area of low pressure associated with another tropical wave could become a tropical depression on its approach to the islands. This system is expected to affect the area by Friday into Saturday.
Based on current projections, tropical storm-like conditions with winds gusting to tropical storm force and rainfall amounts of 60mm to 100mm (2.5in to 4in) in moderate to heavy showers are possible, from Friday afternoon.
