TT MET SERVICE Bulletin: ACTIVE ITCZ OVER TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO

 

Trinidad and to a lesser extent Tobago have been experiencing cloudy to overcast conditions with showers and thundershowers over the last few hours. This is attributed to an active Inter Tropical Convergence Zone or ITCZ. This inclement weather is expected to persist throughout the day over both islands with showers and thundershowers as well as periods of rain. Some improvement is expected by this evening.

Showers and thundershowers can be moderate to heavy and may be accompanied by gusty winds and street/flash flooding. There is also the possibility of landslides/landslips. Seas can become choppy in the vicinity of thundershowers.

Citizens are advised to be vigilant and cautious as they conduct their daily activities given the forecast conditions. Be alert to electrical discharges from thundercloud activity.

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 Service is closely monitoring weather conditions and will issue another bulletin if the situation warrants.
