TT MET SERVICE-OFFICIAL STATEMENT #1 ACTIVE ATLANTIC TROPICAL WAVE APPROACHES LESSER ANTILLES

OFFICIAL STATEMENT #1 ACTIVE ATLANTIC TROPICAL WAVE APPROACHES LESSER ANTILLES

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has been closely monitoring a Tropical Wave in the Atlantic which has a 30% (low) chance of development into a Tropical Depression over the next 48 hours. The system is located approximately 1280 km east of the Lesser Antilles, centred near 12N 49W and is moving westward to west north-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 Wednesday night. 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 pm today 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.
