A High-Surf Advisory and Small-Craft Warning are in effect for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The local Met Office said in a release yesterday that a Low Pressure system anchored in the north-central Atlantic has been generating large northerly swells which are propagating southwards into the Lesser Antilles.
Northerly swells of 10 to 13 feet are expected to affect the coastal waters around St. Vincent and the Grenadines, particularly on the north and eastern coastlines.
As a consequence, large waves and dangerous rip-currents can be expected mainly along the west, north, and east coasts of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, which will create unsafe conditions for small-craft operators. Sea-bathers and other users of the sea are also advised to stay out of the water.
This Advisory and Warning will be in effect until 6:00pm today, April 19, 2017.
