Showers and thunderstorms are expected to affect Trinidad and Tobago for most of the morning on Monday.

The Meteorological Service (Met Office) on Sunday issued an Adverse Weather Alert Yellow Level, warning that intermittent showers and thunderstorms were very likely from 2 am to midday.

While Tobago is expected to be affected more than Trinidad, Northern Trinidad will see much of the poor weather conditions forecast.

Citizens are advised that street/flash flooding can be expected in heavy downpours and thunderstorms. Gusty winds in excess of 45km/hr are possible.

The Met Office noted the following in its forecast for Monday: "Partly cloudy with periods of showers or rain during the day. Isolated heavy showers or thunderstorms are also likely. Settled night with a few lingering showers."
