Moderate to Heavy Showers and Occasional Thundershowers to Affect Trinidad and Tobago Over next 2-4 hrs

.MODERATE TO HEAVY SHOWERS AND OCCASIONAL THUNDERSHOWERS TO AFFECT TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO TODAY

Trinidad and to a lesser extent Tobago should expect moderate to heavy showers and occasional thundershowers for at least the next 2 – 4 hours. Some portions of southern and north-western Trinidad are already being affected.

The adverse wea
ther conditions are as a result of low level convergence ably supported by favorable upper level conditions.

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.

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