OFFICIAL STATEMENT #3  
TROPICAL DEPRESSION SEVEN EXPECTED TO STRENGTHEN TODAY  
 
Tropical Depression Seven (TD #7), which the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has been closely monitoring, has shown some more organization this morning.  
 
At 5 a.m. today, Wednesday 22nd July, TD #7 was located at approximately 2065 km east of the Windward islands, centred near 10.0 North, 42.4 West (see Figure 1, next page). The system is moving westnorthwest at 19 km/h with maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h. 
 
A further increase in forward speed is expected and westward motion should continue through to Friday. Some strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days and TD #7 is expected to become a Tropical Storm later today.  
 
Current analyses suggest that on its current track, the centre of the system is forecast to reach the Southern Windward islands by Saturday morning and is expected to move just north of Trinidad and Tobago.  
 
The TTMS will continue to closely monitor the system and will issue an update at 6:00 p.m. or earlier if the situation warrants. As always, pay close attention to information being issued by the TTMS by visiting www.metoffice.gov.tt, and following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
