Central Bahamas Set For Bad Weekend Weather

BAD weather will continue in the Central Bahamas through Saturday, the Department of Meteorology said Friday evening.

Beachgoers and mariners are warned to exercise caution.

“An area of disturbed weather associated with an upper level low and a surface trough in the vicinity of the Central Bahamas will continue to produce unsettled weather across portions of the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos as it moves westward tonight through Saturday,” forecasters said in a statement.

“Beachgoers and mariners should continue to exercise caution due to high surf and the risk of rip currents at north and east coast beach while boaters in the northwest and central Bahamas should remain in port,” the statement continued. “Residents can also expect localised flooding in low-flying and flood prone areas during heavy and prolonged rainfall events.”

The old people say when the trees put out plenty fruit, it will be a busy hurricane season. This already May and the mango trees are still putting out blossoms.

The rain is good for the citizens who have no city water ........ at least they can fill their water tanks.

The rain is bad for the farmers as they still cannot till their farms in Long Island as there is NO tractor to prepare the ground ........ But God is good, and the mosquitoes will thrive.

Most of the rain is over the next twthree days and not the weekend
