TT MET Service - Official Statement #1 TWO AREAS OF DISTURBED WEATHER APPROACHING THE LESSER ANTILLES

TT MET Service - Official Statement #1 TWO AREAS OF DISTURBED WEATHER APPROACHING THE LESSER ANTILLES

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has been closely monitoring two (2) Areas of Disturbed Weather, Area1 and Area2, in the Atlantic. The "rst Area of Disturbed Weather, Area1, is located approximately 760 km east of the Lesser Antilles, centred near 12N 53W and is moving west north-westward near 24 km/hr.

This area has a 30% (low) chance of development into a Tropical Depression over the next 48 hours. Current analyses suggest that on its projected track, the centre of the system is forecast to reach the Leeward Islands by Monday night. Regardless of development, this system will likely produce gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall across portions of the Lesser Antilles overnight into Monday 9 August 2021.

 The second Area of Disturbed Weather, Area2, is located approximately 1840 km east of the Lesser Antilles, centred near 14N 43W and is moving west southwest near 15 km/hr. This area has a 30% (low) chance of development into a Tropical Depression over the next 48 hours. At this time, Area2 poses no direct threat to Trinidad and Tobago or Grenada and its dependencies. The TTMS will continue to closely monitor these systems and will issue an update at 6:00 pm today (8 August 2021) 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 Of"ce) and following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
