A tropical wave is expected to result in an increase in cloudiness with scattered showers which could be moderate to heavy at times and isolated thunderstorms across the area during the next 24 hours, while a surface trough is expected tomorrow.

People in areas prone to flooding, landslides, and falling rocks should be on alert during the next 24 to 48 hours.

A reduction in the intensity of dust haze can be expected today. However, an increase in intensity can again be expected by Thursday resulting in a reduction in visibility and air quality. People with respiratory sensitivities are advised to take the necessary precautions.

Moderate seas are anticipated during the next 24 hours with wave heights expected to peak near 8.0ft. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect. Small craft operators and sea bathers on the east coast should continue to exercise caution.

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.
