OFFICIAL STATEMENT #2  
BROAD AND ELONGATED ATLANTIC LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM 
 
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has been closely monitoring a low-pressure system in the Atlantic which has a 90% (high) chance of development into a Tropical Depression over the next 48 hours. 
 
The system is located approximately 1400 km east of the Lesser Antilles, centred near 12.5N 46.0W and is moving westward near 30 km/hr.  
 
Current analyses suggest that on its projected track, the centre of the system is forecast to reach the Leeward Islands by Saturday morning.  
 
At this time, the system poses no direct threat to Trinidad and Tobago or Grenada and its dependencies.  
 
The TTMS will continue to closely monitor this system and will issue an update at 6:00 am tomorrow or earlier if the situation warrants. As always, pay close attention to information being issued by the TTMS by visiting www.metoffice.gov.tt, downloading our mobile app (search: TT Met Office) and following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
