Met Office: Tropical wave moving west shows signs of development

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service said an approaching tropical wave has the chance of development over the next few days.

In an update shared Friday (August 28), the Met Office said it has been closely monitoring an active tropical wave in the Atlantic, with the leading edge now approximately 1100 kilometres east of the Lesser Antilles.

The wave has a low chance of development (20 percent) over the next 48 hours.

The system is moving towards the west near 25 kilometres per hour.

Latest analyses indicate that on the projected track, it should begin moving across the southern Eastern Caribbean islands on Sunday 30th August, 2020.

The Met Office said it will continue to closely monitor this system and will issue an update at 9:00 am Saturday or earlier if the situation warrants.

The public is urged to continue monitoring Met Office updates via their official channels.
