Seas are forecast to remain near normal for this time of year over the next week. However, low-level winds are forecast to increase following the passage of Tropical Wave 04 which may cause occasionally choppy seas.
In addition, a moderate to high concentration surge of Saharan Dust is set to reduce horizontal visibility offshore, creating unsafe conditions for smaller crafts by the weekend.
While an Adverse Weather Alert (Yellow Level) is in effect for T&T until 2:00 PM Friday, June 3rd, 2022, there are no marine alerts, watches, or warnings in effect from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service at this time.
