While the 2019 dry season has seen reduced rainfall thus far, Trinidad and Tobago has experienced something else.

Say hello to cooler nighttime temperatures, which have already dipped below 20 degrees Celsius on some nights.

Colder temperatures during the early morning period are not uncommon during the dry season due to reduced cloud cover and colder winds blowing in from the north.

While some are feeling the chill with temperatures averaging around a cool 22 degrees Celsius over the past few nights, Trinidad and Tobago has seen much cooler nights dipping well below January 2019’s coldest temperature on record of 19 degrees Celsius.
