Three tropical waves, one described as being on this country’s ‘doorstep’, are being closely monitored by the Saint Lucia Meteorological Services, which expects that the Island will experience some showers by Friday.

“The other two tropical waves are showing signs of development and they are forecast to be better developed in the next two days, but in the next two days the one in the mid-Atlantic should be closer,” Meteorological Services Director, Andre Joyeaux, explained.

“We are monitoring. The projections for the waves is that if there is any development, they would be moving North of Saint Lucia, so we would not be in the direct path,” the Director stated.

He observed that it’s still the hurricane season, the more active period of which occurs between August and September.

Therefore Joyeaux said people should be wary of tropical weather systems which can occur at any time.

In this regard, he recalled that Trinidad experienced flooding this week because of a ‘microburst.’

“So even if it is not a developed system like a hurricane, tropical waves and tropical storms can still give us adverse weather conditions and persons should continue to be on their guard,” Joyeaux told St Lucia Times.
