Weather forecasters in St. Vincent and the Grenadines have advised that a trough system is expected to begin affecting the country late Monday into early Tuesday.

The Meteorological Office, in an advisory at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, said that the trough system was located east of the Lesser Antilles.

The advisory said that the weather system will add to the general instability across the eastern Caribbean as moisture levels increase.

“This system could produce some moderate to heavy showers over the Windward Islands,” the Met Office said.

A trough system affected SVG on Christmas Eve, bringing with it large volumes of rain, which triggered floods and landslides that left nine persons dead, at least three missing and extensive damage to infrastructure.
