Barbados is under a flood warning until 8.00 p.m.
According to the Barbados Meteorological Services, the combination of a trough system and The Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) has been generating cloudy to overcast skies, rain, pockets of moderate to heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms across the island for most of the day.
The Met Office said that some sections of the island may have already accumulated 2-3 inches of rainfall and this was likely to continue as the evening progresses.
The forecasters advised residents living in flood prone areas to remain alert and take the necessary precautions.
