Adverse Weather Alert Discontinued, Gusty Winds & Heavy Rains Possible By Late Sunday

While the Adverse Weather Alert has been discontinued for T&T at this time, Tropical Wave 60 is forecast to begin affecting the country from late Sunday. Then, the ITCZ is forecast to linger across the country through mid-week, with potentially periods of heavy rainfall affecting mainly southern and eastern halves of Trinidad and to a lesser extent, Tobago.

Adverse Weather Alert Discontinued

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service has discontinued the Adverse Weather Alert (Yellow Level) for Trinidad and Tobago, according to the TTMS, the threat of significant gusts have decreased.

According to the TTMS, “The winds in the low levels of the atmosphere remain relatively strong, however, the likelihood of experiencing gusts in excess of 55km/h has significantly decreased. Breezy conditions will continue over the next two days, and in the event of a heavy shower, the occasional gust can still be expected.

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

The color of the Adverse Weather 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 but the certainty is unlikely, which may be an error from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service.

At this level, there is negligible impact on human safety, assets are basically undamaged and income earning potential is unaffected.

The Met Office is advising the public to monitor weather conditions and continue to monitor official sources for information.
