10:15PM Tuesday 15th January 2019: Isolated Showers Due to Low Level Clouds On Wednesday, Interrupting a Mostly Sunny Day Across T&T.
Low level cloud patches, resulting to convergence on the western side of a ridge of high pressure in the Central Atlantic, are moving across Southern and Central, bringing isolated moderate to showers across the island.
These showers and humid air will limit the outgoing longwave radiation which usually results in cooling. Hence, low temperature tonight are expected to get as low as 22-24°C.
On Wednesday, some low level cloud patches will continue to traverse T&T, bringing some partly cloudy skies and isolated showers, interrupting a mostly warm and sunny day.
The ridge of high pressure across the Central Atlantic will continue to be the dominant feature across the Caribbean, keeping mid to upper levels of the atmosphere dry. This will limit cloud cover across the Southern Windwards.
Maximum temperatures are forecast to be 31-32°C across both islands. Lows are expected to be 22-24°C across Trinidad and Tobago through the weekend. Interior parts of the islands may see temperatures dip below 22°C.
Seas, through the weekend, will be slight to moderate with waves up to 1.5 meters in open waters, and calm in sheltered areas. E winds are expected, between 15-20 knots.
