Yellow Level Adverse Weather Alert in effect

The TT Meteorological Service is advising that rainfall and showers of varying intensities are expected to begin affecting Trinidad from the south-western region during the early morning (Monday 02nd October 2023) and can persist intermittently until late afternoon.

This will further affect other areas across Trinidad and eventually Tobago.

The TTMS says there is a 60% to 70% (medium to high) chance of thunderstorms with significant lightning activity. Gusty winds in excess of 55km/hr are likely especially near heavier showers or thunderstorms.

IMPACTS: Isolated flash floods, localized street flooding and ponding can cause temporary traffic disruptions and landslips are possible in areas so prone. Gusty winds can lead to broken tree branches and loose/unsecured items being displaced. Seas can become agitated due to strong winds.
