A weak tropical wave together with the presence of a low to mid-level trough is expected to produce an increase in cloudiness, scattered showers, and a chance of isolated thunderstorms across the area during the next 24 hours. Shower activity could be moderate mainly during the afternoon into tonight. People in areas prone to flooding, landslides, and falling rocks should exercise caution during the period. A high-pressure system is expected to result in a relatively dry atmosphere tomorrow as the day progresses.
A decrease in dust haze is expected during the next 24 hours. People with respiratory sensitivities are advised to take all precautions to avoid complications
Moderate seas are anticipated during the next 24 hours with swells peaking near 7.0ft. A High Surf Advisory is in effect for above normal seas on the eastern coast. Small craft operators and sea bathers should exercise caution. Light winds are expected over the next few days with improved sea conditions.
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.
