Live Updates: Adverse Weather, Gusty Winds Affect T&T

Through Wednesday, a surface to low-level trough, in the presence of a highly favorable atmospheric environment, is forecast to produce scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms. However, overall heavier rainfall is forecast to remain mainly across southern and eastern areas of T&T due to persisting strong westerly wind shear.

The main hazards include heavy rainfall, flooding, and gusty winds. Generally, the street and flash flooding threat will be medium to high.

Additionally, sustained winds up to 30 KM/H and wind gusts in excess of 45 KM/H are likely, mainly from Tuesday afternoon. From the late afternoon Tuesday into Wednesday, gusts in excess of 55 KM/H are possible, particularly across and north of Tobago. Winds of this strength can cause power dips and outages, fallen trees, utility poles, and lines, as well as sporadic areas of wind damage.

Lightning will accompany thunderstorms. Funnel clouds and waterspouts are unlikely through the forecast period due to elevated low-level winds, and landslides are possible across elevated areas.

At this time, an Adverse Weather Alert (Yellow Level) is in effect for Trinidad and Tobago from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service from 6:00 PM Tuesday through 2:00 PM Wednesday.

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