TTMS issues Adverse Weather Alert


    A Yellow Level Adverse Weather Alert will be in place from 5am on Wednesday to 8pm on Thursday.

    The Met Service says showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected from Wednesday morning over oceanic waters and extending across Trinidad and Tobago.

    This activity is associated with an active tropical wave with potential for development over the next few days.

    The TTMS says persons can expect periods of lull between bursts of rainfall and thunderstorm activity.

    It adds that gusty winds in excess of 70km/hr can be expected, along with rainfall accumulations of 75 – 125 mm.

    Street and/or flash flooding are likely in areas of heavy downpours, while tree branches and loose objects can be displaced during strong winds.

    Impacts can also include larger than normal waves in both open waters and in the Gulf of Paria.
