Barbadians can expect some bad weather late tomorrow and into Wednesday as a result of a tropical wave nearby.
In a severe weather statement issued at midday, the Barbados Meteorological Service advised residents to monitor the progress of two tropical waves to the east-southeast of the island.
According to forecasters, a wave closest to Barbados is supporting an area of low pressure located about 700 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands.
The Met Office says the systems lacks a well-defined centre, but continues to show signs of organization as it moves west to west-northwest at about 15 mph (24km/h).
Forecasters says while conditions are not favourable for development before the system reaches the Lesser Antilles, it will bring pockets of moderate to heavy showers, thunderstorms and occasional gusty winds from tomorrow evening.
The Met Office says it could produce as much as one to two inches (25 to 50 mm) of rain along the path of the system. In addition, swells of 2.5 to 3.0 metres (8 to 10 feet) are also likely.
The second wave is projected to take a more northwestward track, away from the island chain, but the Met Office said it would continue to monitor both systems.
