Yellow alert extended to 7pm tonight

The T&T Meteorological Services has extended the yellow alert until 7pm tonight.

According to the MET Service, the tropical wave axis is now west of T&T, however, occasional periods of showers are still expected, due to lingering convergence behind the wave axis.

There is also a medium-high (60 – 70%) chance of isolated thunderstorms. The ground continues to be saturated, so heavy showers/thunderstorms may result in street flooding or isolated flash flooding events, and smaller water courses may also be overwhelmed in some areas. Landslips and landslides are possible in areas so prone. Gusty winds in excess of 55 km/hr are possible and seas can become agitated at times in sheltered areas.  

The public is encouraged to avoid wading or driving through flood waters.  

Residents along smaller water courses and areas with poor drainage should continue to be vigilant. Monitor weather conditions and official updates. More information:
