Sea Forecast: Near Calm Seas As King Tides Subside This Week

Over the next week, seas are forecast to be relatively calm across Trinidad and Tobago’s coastal waters. Low-level winds are forecast to be gentle to light, with no long-period swells affecting the region.

King tides are forecast to subside by Tuesday, so mariners may still need to exercise elevated caution due to tidal fluctuations. Additionally, visibility could be affected by fluctuating concentrations of Saharan Dust and volcanic smoke throughout the week.

There are no alerts, watches, or warnings from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service for Trinidad and Tobago at this time.
