Climatologist: “Soaring heat rumours out of control!”

Reports of unusually high temperatures affecting Trinidad and Tobago are being described as blown out of proportion by Climatologist Kenneth Kerr.

Reports have indicated that T&T Tobago is forecast to experience maximum high temperatures not seen for 2021 to date.

As Hurricane Sam moves northeast of the region, a trough extending southwest of the powerful hurricane is forecast to slacken the pressure gradient across the Lesser Antilles, allowing for sunny skies and light winds – the perfect combination for high temperatures.

Speaking with our newsroom this morning Kerr stated that the high temperatures presently affecting the islands is nothing new this time of year.
