A High Surf Advisory is in effect for the western coastlines of Barbados.
A High Surf Advisory is issued when breaking wave action poses or is forecast to pose a threat to life and property within the surf zone during the next 36 hours.

This surf activity is intensifying and sea bathers and other users of the sea should exercise extreme caution. It is recommended to use beaches with an on-duty lifeguard. This activity is expected to persist into Monday.
– Exercise extreme caution at the beaches, particularly along the western coasts.
– If venturing into the water, ensure there is an on-duty lifeguard.
