Rough Seas Bulletin #5: Rough seas still affecting open waters

Rough seas continue to affect open waters. Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models continue to forecast wave heights and swells to be in excess of 2.5 metres in open waters, with long periods between successive wave crests. Open waters refer to waters quite a distance from the shore. Reports have indicated that shorelines of Trinidad and Tobago are experiencing normal to moderate sea conditions. Although the amplitude of the swells has decreased along the shorelines, sea conditions remain hazardous as there is still a slight choppiness. 

Prediction models indicate that these marine conditions in open waters will improve to moderate conditions with swells up to 2.5 metres over the next two days and then gradually return to normal.

SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS, SEA BATHERS AND ALL OTHER MARINE INTERESTS ARE ASKED TO EXERCISE EXTRA CAUTION DURING ANY SEA RELATED ACTIVITIES. 

The situation is being closely montired and further issues will be issued as the situation warrants.
