WEATHER (6:00 PM, Oct12): Flood Watch for Dominica discontinued from 6:00 p.m.

Moisture and instability associated with a tropical wave is expected to maintain increased cloudiness with scattered showers which could be moderate at times and isolated thunderstorms across the area during the earlier part of tonight. A reduction in shower activity can be expected as the night progresses.

The flash flood watch has been discontinued for Dominica as of 6pm this evening. However, people in areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rocks should continue to exercise caution during tonight.

A gradual increase in dust haze concentration can again be expected by tomorrow into Thursday resulting in a reduction in visibility and air quality.

People with respiratory sensitivities are advised to take the necessary precautions.

Moderate seas are anticipated during the next 24 hours with wave heights expected to peak near 8.0ft. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect. Small craft operators and sea bathers on the east coast should continue to exercise caution.
