TTMS monitoring Tropical Wave


    The TT Met Service is monitoring an active tropical wave to the east of the Windward Islands.

    According to the National Hurricane Centre’s update at 2pm, this tropical wave has a low (20%) chance of developing into a Tropical Cyclone in 48 hours and a low (30%) chance of development in five (5) days.

    Regardless of development, moist and unstable conditions are expected to exist over the islands.

    The TTMS says Trinidad and Tobago will experience cloudy skies with intermittent periods of showers and a medium to high chance of thunderstorm activity.

    These conditions are expected to persist from the middle of this week and into the start of the weekend due to the approach and passage of this tropical wave.

    At present, there are no alerts, watches or warnings in effect for Trinidad and Tobago.
