WEATHER (6:00 AM, August 23): Occasional cloudiness, showers, increase in dust haze during next 24 hours

A high pressure system is expected to be dominant across the northern half of the Lesser Antilles, including Dominica, during the next 24 hours resulting in breezy conditions with occasional cloudiness and a few showers. Meanwhile, unstable conditions are expected to maintain cloudiness with showers and possible thunderstorms across the islands to the south.

An increase in dust haze concentration will persist across the area during the next 24 hours. People with respiratory sensitivities should take all precautions to avoid complications.

Moderate seas are anticipated during the next 24 hours with waves peaking to 8.0ft on the east coast today. A reduction to 7.0ft is expected overnight. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for above normal seas. Small craft operators and sea bathers on the east coast should exercise caution.
