“A radar image at 14:00 hrs shows clouds approaching the island from the East. We can observe that the most active weather is staying south of Aruba,” according to Aruba Weather Watch. “However atmospheric conditions are in favor of any cloud development around the island bringing moderate to heavy rain showers.”

Aruba is experiencing some rainy weather this weekend, which started yesterday with grey clouds and rain.

An active tropical wave is crossing over the southeastern Caribbean Sea bringing unsettled weather over the island and around it over the greatest part of the day. First effects of this tropical system reached our islands yesterday and will be present through Friday afternoon.

Analysis of this tropical disturbance shows a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorm activity as this storm moves west in the direction of our islands. Moderate to heavy rainfall is expected on various parts of the island, which will result in localized flooding in areas vulnerable to excessive precipitation.

Furthermore, winds had a north to northerly component yesterday, and will become west to southwesterly by Friday, according to Aruba Weather Watch.
