Information Bulletin: RAINFALL CONTINUES TO AFFECT TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO

Over the past few hours, parts of Trinidad and to a lesser extent Tobago have been experiencing cloudy/overcast conditions with periods of rain and showers, some of which have been moderate to heavy at times. This rainfall activity is associated with the passage of a low-level trough and moisture surge encountering favourable conditions in the upper levels of the atmosphere.

 

Numerical Weather Prediction Models (NWP) forecast rainfall activity associated with this system to continue to affect Trinidad and to a lesser extent Tobago. Periods of rain and showers are forecast for this evening into tonight, but cloudy conditions are expected to continue into tomorrow morning, 12th December 2013.

 

Localized street and flash flooding may occur in areas experiencing prolonged rainfall or heavy showers. Given the expected conditions and the already saturated soil, rivers of moderate carrying capacity can become overwhelmed and there is the possibility of landslides/landslips. Citizens are therefore advised to be vigilant and cautious as they conduct their activities and to pay attention to the media or visit our website at www.metoffice.gov.tt/forecast for daily weather updates at 6am, 10am, 3pm and 6 pm.

 

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 will continue to closely monitor this system and will issue another bulletin if the situation warrants.
