Adverse Weather Alert Discontinued For T&T, Flooding Ongoing

Adverse Weather Alert Discontinued

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service has discontinued the Adverse Weather Alert (Yellow Level) for Trinidad and Tobago as rainfall remained east of Trinidad, mainly affecting Tobago and offshore eastern T&T due to strong westerly wind shear. Still, afternoon showers and thunderstorms are possible, exacerbating ongoing floods.

Information from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service concerning the Adverse Weather Alert Discontinuation for November 27th, 2020.

According to the TTMS, “Most of the showers and thunderstorms are to the east of Trinidad and Tobago, so the threat of impactful weather has significantly decreased. Keep monitoring our updates as any additional rainfall to an already saturated soil can result in the possibility of localized flooding, landslips, and landslides.

Trinidad and Tobago is NOT under any tropical storm threat, watch or warning.

The color of the alert indicates the severity of the event and the probability of the event occurring. Currently, the alert level is at Green, as the Discontinuation was issued.
