Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service Information Bulletin: Moderate to heavy Showers over Trinidad and Tobago may lead to street/flash flooding.

 

Date: Monday 23rd of July 2012 
ISSUED AT:06:08AM

MODERATE TO HEAVY SHOWERS OVER TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO
MAY LEAD TO STREET/FLASH FLOODING.


Over the past few hours parts of Trinidad,
particularly southern and eastern areas, have
been experiencing cloudy/overcast conditions with
periods of rain and showers, some of which have
been moderate to heavy. This rainfall activity is
due to the presence of the Inter Tropical
Convergence Zone (ITCZ) in a very moist and
unstable atmosphere which is being enhanced by
upper level dynamics. 


Cloudy to overcast conditions with periods of rain
and/or showers, some of which can be moderate to
heavy at times and the isolated thundershower is
expected to continue over Trinidad and to a
lesser extent Tobago, during the next 3-6 hours.


It should be noted that gusty winds will accompany
moderate occasionally heavy rainfall and the
possibility of localized street and flash
flooding may occur in the vicinity of heavy
showers and thundershowers. Citizens are
therefore advised to be vigilant and cautious as
they conduct their activities during the next 3-6
hours. 


WE WISH TO UNDERSCORE THAT AT THIS TIME TRINIDAD
AND TOBAGO IS NOT UNDER ANY TROPICAL STORM
THREAT, WATCH OR WARNING.
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Services
is closely monitoring this weather situation and
will issue another bulletin if the situation
warrants.
