Met Office: Rain, gusty winds expected from Tuesday night
Created : 12 June 2018
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service said light to moderate showers are expected from Tuesday night as an Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone heads toward Trinidad and Tobago.
In an update shared Tuesday afternoon, the Met Office said convergence associated with a tropical wave is expected to affect mainly Trinidad overnight and Wednesday (June 12-13, 2018).
Most activity associated with the wave is expected to be south of Trinidad, however showers are still expected over varying localities at times. There is also a risk of thunderstorm activity favouring southern areas of Trinidad.
The Met Office said a major feature of this event is an accompanying low-level wind surge. This means that winds will be stronger than usual and gusts may even approach 40kt/46 miles per houror 74 kilometres per hour.
As a result, sea conditions are also expected to be occasionally rough from June 12-13, but should return to normal by June 15.
