The Windward Islands appear to have been spared the ravages of the first named hurricane of the 2015 season.
According to the Acting Director of Met Services Andrew Joyeaux, the system which has strengthened into a hurricane is on a trajectory toward the northern Leeward islands.
He adds that while it has strengthened the system is a small hurricane and is not expected to severely affect the Windward islands.
Mr Joyeaux notes that while the hurricane is still too far away for its effects to be felt here, he explained that the intermittent rains were as a result of moisture due to a tropical wave.
