Map of present conditions

The Dominica Meteorological Office has extended a flash flood watch and is warning the public, especially residents in areas prone to flooding and landslide, to remain alert as increased moisture levels and a low level trough  continue to produce some unsettled weather over Dominica and the Eastern Caribbean.

Over the next 24 to 48 hours generally cloudy to overcast skies, scattered showers, periods of rain and possible isolated thunderstorms can be expected across the Dominica. Some of these showers may be heavy at times.

A flash flood Watch is extended until Tuesday November 29th. Motorist and pedestrians should exercise caution; look out for falling rocks and waterlogged roads.

Sea conditions are expected to be slightly above normal mainly along the eastern coast. Small craft operators and sea bathers should continue to exercise caution, the Met Office said.

On September 28 heavy rainfall associated with Tropical Storm Ophelia flooded several sections of the island, especially on the west coast.
