The building high pressure in the Atlantic will
support moderate to fresh, at times strong to
near gale force winds in gusts. Winds will
increase a bit over the east and central
Caribbean during the weekend and into
early next week.

Available moisture will induce a passing to
brief shower over parts of the island during
the morning hours. Mostly fair weather will
eventually prevail.

Marine conditions: Smooth to moderate seas
can be expected on the south and protected
sites. Moderate seas are in place over the
east to northwest coastal regions with seas
in the range of 4 to 6 feet. Seas will build
during the weekend to up to 7 to 8 feet on
the east to northwest sections and a Small
Craft Advisory will become in effect by
Sunday 6 PM for these coastal parts.

Next update will be issued 09/05/2021
