Grenada: Forecasters at the Meteorological Office at the Maurice Bishop International Airport have advised that the flood and landslide warnings issued for Grenada on Saturday, November 5th, have been discontinued. The conditions of persistent rainfall predicted on Saturday evening for the next few days have changed as the tropical wave that was expected did not approach Grenada, but affected other islands to the north.

Moisture and instability continue to be present in the atmosphere and there is a very low chance of additional rainfall. Another tropical wave is forecast to approach Grenada on Tuesday, November 8th. Currently the prediction is for a low chance of cloudiness and rainfall.

Earlier, as per the Eastern Caribbean Weather updates six hr radar estimated rainfall up to 2AM shows some more heavy rainfall fell on the eastern half of Dominica 25-75mm. Less fell on northern half of St. Lucia and St. Vincent (10-15mm). BVI also had some heavy rain, with amounts 10-37.5mm. Parts of the Leewards have been cloudy to overcast with rain periods, but the scattered heavy showers have been hi or miss during this evening.

2nd pic: current radar shows conditions are still there for localized slow moving heavy showers. There are light to heavy showers passing north and south of Barbados, to the east of Saint Lucia and also Tobago. The rain clouds which are producing the heaviest are those on land and like those earlier in the day, they are displaying signs of being enhanced by island mountains. People can also access the radar loop to see this in Dominica and St. Vincent. Showers which are heavier in yellow/orange tend to get stuck or form and reform on land… favoring the center, north and east of the islands… but on water to the east you can see showers are moving. 

Various regions such as East of Saint Lucia and Dominica has been witnessing flash floods due to heavy rainfall.
