Weather Outlook for Dominica and the Lesser Antilles

Valid from: 6:00 AM on Thursday, November 18, 2021

A high-pressure system will be the dominant feature across most of the Lesser Antilles during today resulting in periods of cloudiness and scattered showers. A relative increase in moisture levels can be expected across the area as the day progresses.

Thereafter, from Friday afternoon, a surface trough is projected to produce a further increase in shower activity across parts of the island chain including Dominica, particularly during the overnight period and into Saturday.

Moderate seas are anticipated during the next 24 hours with swells peaking to 7.0ft, in northern and eastern coastal waters. A High Surf Advisory and a Small Craft Advisory remain in effect until 12 noon today. Small craft operators should exercise caution. Sea bathers are advised to stay out of the water.

Please note that a greater degree of cloudiness, more frequent rainfall, and higher rainfall amounts are normally experienced across the east coast and interior of Dominica.
