Between Tropical Wave (Possible Tropical Cyclone #2) spreading over the southern Caribbean arc and the Azores anticyclone, the flow of trade winds will remain sustainable for the next couple of days.

Moderate to moderately strong northeasterly northeast winds blow over Guadeloupe. Winds of up to 70 km/h are expected on the plain. It can reach 80 to 90 km/h on the hills and at altitudes of the Basse Terre.

A heavy sea is clouding this evening (around 9pm local time) with bottoms of about 3m to 3m 30m from the east and southeast swells in the above areas causing unusual waves.

Some localized immersion can be observed in the lower areas of the coast. Docking of boats will be requested.
