Live Updates: ITCZ To Bring Showers & Thunderstorms To T&T

The Intertropical Convergence Zone is affecting Trinidad and Tobago through Thursday, under favorable mid- to upper-level conditions.

Periodic heavy showers, isolated thunderstorms, and light to moderate rain are forecast to interrupt variably cloudy skies. Peak intensity in rainfall is forecast generally during the overnight hours with overall higher rainfall accumulations remaining south and east across Trinidad and offshore due to strong westerly wind shear.

Through Thursday, heavy to violent showers and thunderstorms are forecast, capable of producing street or flash flooding, mainly favoring eastern and southern halves of Trinidad and localized areas of western Trinidad and Tobago.

Additionally, sustained winds up to 30 KM/H and wind gusts in excess of 45 KM/H are likely, with gusts in excess of 55 KM/H less likely. Winds of this strength can cause power dips and outages, fallen trees, utility poles, and lines, as well as sporadic areas of wind damage.

Landslides are possible across Southern Trinidad, the Northern Range, and Tobago and lightning will accompany thunderstorms. Funnel clouds and waterspouts are unlikely at this time.

An Adverse Weather Alert (Yellow Level) has been discontinued for Trinidad, Tobago, and surrounding marine areas from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service at 2:00 PM Thursday.

Seas are also forecast to be agitated. Trinidad and Tobago is not under a tropical storm watch or warning.
