...CARIBBEAN SEA & LOCAL REGION...

The ridge of the Atlantic high pressure system is
supplying the region with a moderate to fresh, at
times strong to near gale force wind in gusts.
No significant precipitation is expected due to
shallow moisture in the region. Otherwise, Saharan
Dust, increased in concentration, is producing
hazy conditions across the region. As a result,
visibility and air quality will be affected
across the local area. People with respiratory
sensitivities should take the necessary
precautions to avoid complications.

For marine conditions: Smooth seas are noted on the
protected sites with moderate seas on the south sites.
Moderate to fairly rough seas are noted over the east
to northwest coastal sections with seas in the range
of 5 to 7 feet, locally up to 8 feet. A Small Craft
advisory for the east to northwest coastal sections
remains in effect. Elsewhere, Small Craft exercise
caution over open seas.

Next update will be issued 20/05/2022
