Saint Lucia can expect a reprieve from intermittent heavy rain affecting the country over the past few days but are likely to see more inclement weather by Saturday.
“We have the remnants of a Tropical Wave that passed through On Tuesday, so the instability is still in the area and we also have a surface trough that is affecting us right now,” Director of Meteorological Services Andre Joyeux explained.
He said that, as a result, Saint Lucia would get some scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms.
But Joyeux told St. Lucia Times that the weather system should not last long.
“We are forecasting that by this evening (Wednesday, June 28, 2023) the weather should clear up. So generally, fair to partly cloudy skies will prevail tomorrow,” the Director of Meteorological Services stated.
Nevertheless, Joyeux revealed that Saint Lucia was expecting another Tropical Wave to pass by Saturday, bringing some cloudy periods with scattered showers.
“We are in the hurricane season, when the waves pass through every three to four days,” he observed.
