The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Services says no watches or warning are in effect for St. Vincent and the Grenadines as it continues to monitor the progress of Tropical Storm Isaac, as it moves closer to the Lesser Antilles.

At 11 am Tropical Storm Isaac was centered near latitude 15.0° North; longitude 54.7° West or about 450 miles east northeast of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Aircraft data indicate maximum sustained remain near 60 miles per hour with higher gusts. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next 72 hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outwards up to 175 miles, primarily to the north of the center. “Isaac” is moving westward at 17 miles per hour.

On the current forecast track, the center of this system is forecast to pass near Dominica, or approximately 150 miles north of mainland St. Vincent early tomorrow.

As the system progresses westward, moderate to heavy showers, thunderstorms and occasional gusty winds can be expected from early tomorrow into Friday.

Forecast Models suggest that rainfall accumulations of 2 to 3 inches are possible across SVG during the passage of “Isaac”.

Sea conditions are also forecast to deteriorate from later today with swells peaking near 3.0 meters or 10feet.
