Trinidad and Tobago's weather: Sunny and hazy

Update August 16, 2019, 11:22 am:

Weather conditions have returned to normal following the discontinuation of an adverse weather alert on Thursday.

However the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service said there is a moderate concentration of Saharan dust in the atmosphere, which will continue until the end of August.

The Met Office said in an update on Friday that although dust is present, there will be a break on Saturday as a tropical wave moves through the area. 

"Saharan dust is expected to maintain a presence in our area next week, once the activity associated with the wave has past (Late Sunday). It is also possible for us to see a few more events before the month is over and updates will be done accordingly."

"It should be noted that moisture at higher levels of the atmosphere can "mask" the dust, which is the case over T&T at present," the Met Office said. 

Here’s a look at today’s weather:

Trinidad, Tobago and the remainder of the Lesser Antilles:

Generally sunny, hazy and at times breezy despite brief showers in few areas. The night will be mostly clear with a light breeze.
