TTMS: Adverse Weather Alert Discontinuation

Adverse Weather Alert Discontinued

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service has discontinued the Adverse Weather Alert as the threat of significant impacts has passed, with showers still ongoing across Tobago.

It comes at no surprise as mostly settled conditions have persisted across Trinidad over the last 12-18 hours, barring the few isolated showers. Across Tobago on the other hand, showers have been ongoing since early morning, with a few heavier showers earlier today.

“However, a few intervals of showers and the possibility of the isolated thunderstorm remains in the forecast, especially for Tobago and the Northern half of Trinidad.” according to the TTMS.

Trinidad and Tobago is NOT under any tropical storm threat, watch or warning.

The 36th tropical wave of the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season is now west of Trinidad and Tobago and most of the activity trailing the wave is north of Trinidad, affecting Tobago and the remainder of the Southern Windwards.

Tropical waves typically have fair weather ahead of the wave axis, though other features in the area such as surface troughs, increased atmospheric moisture, and local climatic effects, to name a few, may trigger showers and the odd thunderstorm. Following the passage of the wave, much of the active weather typically associated with a tropical wave occurs.
