SEVEN DAY FORECAST FOR THE BAHAMAS from August 4th through August 10th, 2022

General Situation: Deep layer moisture will be on a gradual rise over the next few days as a mid to upper level trough meanders westwards across the area.  However, there will still be some pockets of drier air that will attempt to inhibit the chances of shower activity.  A High pressure ridge over the area will maintain moderate to fresh breezes across the Bahamas.  Light traces of haze will creep through the islands from a plume of Saharan air layer.  The Public is being advised to limit daytime outdoor activities and remain hydrated due to soaring heat indices. If you have allergies and are sensitive to dust particles, please ensure that every effort is made to protect your health during the faint passage of any Saharan Dust.
