Information Bulletin: Moderate to heavy showers and the occasional thundershower to affect Trinidad and Tobago Today

Trinidad and Tobago should expect moderate to heavy showers and the occasional thundershower for at least the next 4 – 6 hours. Some portions of southern Trinidad are already being affected and the associated weather instability is an

ticipated to encompass the rest of both islands over the time period defined.

The adverse weather conditions are as a result of low level convergence ably supported by a well positioned upper level trough.

Winds may gust in excess of 50 km/hr in heavy showers and thundershowers. Rainfall accumulations of between 30 – 40 millimeters, or greater in some locations, can be expected from this rainfall event.

Depending on rainfall intensities, rivers of moderate carrying capacities may become overwhelmed. Landslips/landslides may occur.

Citizens are advised to be vigilant and cautious as they conduct their daily activities given forecast weather conditions. Be alert to any electrical discharges from thundercloud activity. Adopt measures which would preserve life and property.

WE STRONGLY UNDERSCORE THAT TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO IS NOT UNDER ANY TROPICAL STORM THREAT, WATCH OR WARNING AT THIS TIME.
