Tropical Storm Beryl could bring storm conditions to Tobago

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) is actively monitoring the newly formed Tropical Storm BERYL in the Eastern Atlantic. At 5:00 am, the Storm was located at 9.8ºN latitude 45.5ºW longitude, approximately 1570 kilometers ESE of Trinidad and Tobago.

At 5:00 am today (29th June 2024), the National Hurricane Centre has indicated that Tropical Storm Beryl is strengthening. The system is forecast to track westward at 33km/h. A relatively quick westward to west-northwestward motion is expected during the next few days. On the forecast track, the system is expected to move across the Windward Islands late Sunday night and Monday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional steady to rapid strengthening is expected during the next couple of days, and Beryl is expected to become a hurricane tonight or Sunday.

At this time, the system poses no direct threat to Trinidad. However, based on current track, Tobago lies on the southern edge of the cone there is a low to medium (30% to 50%) chance of Tropical Storm conditions favouring Tobago.

The initial outlook for Trinidad and Tobago is for cloudy skies with showers and a medium to high chance of thunderstorm activity by Monday 01st July 2024. Sea conditions are expected to become further agitated.

THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO ALERTS, WATCHES OR WARNINGS IN EFFECT FOR TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO.
