Citizens are being told to brace for rain this coming week.

This, as the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) is currently monitoring three Tropical waves in the Atlantic Ocean.

It says the weather systems can potentially impact our weather over the next week.

On Sunday, the Met Office provided the following summary of all the activity in the Atlantic Ocean:

1) Tropical wave along the African Coast-Contains scattered thunderstorms. Disorganised. Too early to determine its impact on T&T. (timeframe - next weekend/early following week)

2) Tropical wave in Central Atlantic-Slow-moving area of low pressure with disorganised showers and thunderstorms. 40% chance of cyclone development within the next 5 days.
(may indirectly affect T&T's weather late this week)

3) Tropical wave just east of T&T- Moving west, expected to bring showers and possible thunderstorms tomorrow (Monday 9th).

4) Area of disorganised showers and thunderstorms associated with a low level trough. Expected to continue moving westward near the Greater Antilles. 20% chance of cyclone development within the next 5 days.
