From September through November 2016, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) experienced a series of significant rainfall events beginning with the passage of Hurricane Mathew in September 2016 and culminating with the passage of two trough systems on November 9 and November 28, 2016. Due to the consistent rainfall over the period, ground conditions were largely saturated which set the stage for intense flash flooding associated with the two troughs. A single death was reported from Bequia.

The combination of the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone and a mid-level trough system has been generating cloudy to overcast skies, pockets of moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain and isolated thunderstorms across St. Vincent and the Grenadines during the morning.

Flash-flooding is already occurring in some areas. In this cause, on the Grenadine Island of Bequia. As a consequence, a Flood–Warning has been issued and will remain in effect until 6:00 pm this evening.
