Met Office: Area of disturbed weather south-east of T&T can possibly become a tropical cyclone

The Met Office says an area of disturbed weather south-east of T&T has become better organised and has a 40% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone in the next three to four days.

The Met Office issued another bulletin this afternoon, with the latest information.

"At 2.00 p.m. today, Friday 16th June, 2017, a broad area of disturbed weather, was located approximately 3000 km south east of Trinidad and Tobago.

Over the last 24 hours, this area of disturbed weather has become better organized.

There is a low chance (20%) of tropical cyclone development over the next 24 to 48 hours, however, this increases to a medium chance (40%) over the next 3 to 4 days.

At this time, this is an area of disturbed weather for which the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) will be investigating and monitoring, paying particular attention to the likelihood of tropical cyclone development.

All interests in Trinidad and Tobago are asked to monitor the progress of this system and pay close attention to information being issued by the TTMS by visiting our website at www.metoffice.gov.tt, downloading our mobile app (search: TT Met Office) and following us on Twitter and Facebook.

The TTMS is reminding citizens that we are in the Hurricane Season and adequate preparation is advised.

WE WISH TO UNDERSCORE THAT AT THIS TIME TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO IS NOT UNDER ANY TROPICAL CYCLONE WATCH OR WARNING.

The TTMS will be closely monitoring this system as it moves across the Tropical Atlantic Ocean and will issue another bulletin within 24 hours."
