AREA OF DISTURBED WEATHER ASSOCIATED WITH AN ACTIVE TROPICAL WAVE ABOUT 100KM EAST OF THE SOUTHERN WINDWARD ISLANDS.

At 5:00 am today, the area of disturbed weather associated with an active Tropical Wave was located approximately 100 km to the east of the southern Windward Islands. Its movement is towards the northwest near 25 km/hr. Environmental conditions continues to be marginally conducive for further development. Although instability associated with the proximity of the system to our islands has been minimal overnight, its presence is more likely to be felt sometime today. As a result, light to moderate and at times heavy showers can be expected with the occasional thundershower, which may become intense. Rainfall accumulations of between 30 – 40 millimeters or even greater in some locations are anticipated from this rainfall event. Gusty winds in excess of 45km/hr will accompany heavy showers/thundershowers. Landslips/landslides are likely along slopes of the northern range. Rivers of moderate carrying capacities may become inundated. Citizens are advised to be vigilant and cautious given forecast weather conditions. Be alert to any electrical discharges from thunderclouds and adopt measures which would preserve life and property. WE STRONGLY UNDERSCORE THAT TRINIDAD & TOBAGO IS NOT UNDER ANY TROPICAL STORM THREAT, WATCH OR WARNING AT THIS TIME. The situation is being monitored and another bulletin will be issued as the situation warrants.
