“Based on official reports, the peak of this particular event has passed and the sea state has improved as seas are near 1.5m in open waters and below 1.0m in sheltered areas. However, it is still possible for these northerly long period swells to cause some agitation of nearshore sea conditions at the highlighted areas.” according to the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service.
