Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for T&T

Tropical Storm Warning #10 Orange level remains in effect for Trinidad and Tobago until Wed, Jun 29, 2022 5:00 PM

According to The Met Office, a Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions (sustained winds of 63 km/h or greater) are likely over the warning area within 36 hours or less.

At 11:00 am on Tuesday the centre of Potential Tropical Cyclone Two (PTC2) was located near 9.8ºN latitude 57.5ºW longitude or about 380 km East of Trinidad. PTC2 is moving toward the west at 37 km/h and a west to north-westward motion is expected over the next few days.

The system is now forecast to pass near or over portions of the southern Windward Islands by this evening and tropical storm conditions are now likely from 6pm this evening.

Ahead of the system, isolated afternoon heavy showers/thunderstorms can develop, which can produce gusty winds in excess of 55 km/h.
