T&T remains under weather alert … Tropical Disturbance monitored

Trinidad and Tobago remains under an Adverse Weather Alert (Yellow Level) from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) that went into effect at 12:00 AM (midnight) on Wednesday. The Alert, which is in effect until 12:00 PM (noon) on Friday, says the severity of impacts is moderate, and the certainty of the adverse weather event is likely.

In the NHC’s Tropical Weather Outlook at 8:00 AM, they explain, “A broad area of low pressure located near the southern Windward Islands continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Radar imagery from Barbados and surface observations indicates that the system has not become any better organized since yesterday. However, upper-level winds are forecast to become more conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to form over the next several days if the system remains over water while moving generally westward at about 15 mph over the southeastern and southern Caribbean Sea. An Air Force reconnaissance mission is currently en route to investigate the system this morning.”

Today’s weather forecast for T&T says to expect “cloudy conditions with occasional light to moderate showers and extended periods of rain. There is the high chance (70-80%) of a few thunderstorms. Conditions expected to persist intermittently overnight.”
