WEATHER (12:00 PM, November 5): Possibility of significant shower activity by tonight, people in flooding, landslide prone areas asked to be on alert

Moisture and instability associated with a trough will continue to affect the Windward Islands over the next 24 hours. As a result, increased cloudiness and shower activity can be expected across the area with most of the heavier showers moving across the islands to the south of Dominica. Shower activity may become more significant across Dominica by tonight into Monday. People in areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rocks should be on the alert and should exercise caution.

Moderate sea conditions are expected during the next 24 hours with waves peaking near 7ft. Small craft operators and sea bathers should exercise caution.
