Forecast: Mostly Sunny Skies Across T&T This Week, With Few, Brisk Showers

Through the next five days, a deep-layered high-pressure system is forecast to dominate across the region, leading to mostly sunny skies. Isolated showers are possible due to localized areas of convergence but no significant rainfall is forecast through Friday.

Here is what you need to know:

— Mostly sunny, hazy, and somewhat breezy conditions are forecast through the next five days. Daily, there is a low chance of a heavy shower, with brisk isolated showers possible due to low-level cloud patches. Thunderstorms are unlikely this week.
— No significant weather hazards are forecast through Friday, with a very low chance of street or flash flooding. A surge of Saharan Dust and Vog is forecast to reduce air quality and visibility through Thursday.
– Additionally, sustained winds up to 35 KM/H through Monday, and up to 25 KM/H through the week. Wind gusts up to and in excess of 45 KM/H are possible mainly accompanying showers.
Funnel clouds and waterspouts are possible, mainly during the latter half of the week due to light winds across T&T.
— There are no alerts, watches, or warnings in effect from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service for T&T at this time.
