“A frontal boundary in the vicinity of Hispaniola and moving east will see an increase in these conditions for the islands tonight. Notwithstanding the wind will remain on the lower side due to a very slack pressure gradient, long period swells resulting in dangerous breaking surfs will continue to invade mainly the northern coastlines,” the DDM says.
