The Met Office has discontinued the rough seas bulletin that has been in place over the last week.

A statement by the Met Office says it has seen improving sea conditions but it is maintaining a warning to seafarers to exercise caution.

The following is the Met Office's latest statement:

"Buoy data as well as reports reaching the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service indicate that sea conditions over the last 24 hours have been gradually improving along affected coastlines of Trinidad and Tobago.

Currently, seas conditions are moderate, with wave heights reaching up to 2.5 metres in open waters and near 1.0 metre in sheltered areas. Additionally, Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models forecast sea conditions to improve further and gradually return to a state of normalcy over the next 24 hours.

As a result, the Rough Seas bulletin is being discontinued.

AS A PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE, SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS, SEA BATHERS AND ALL OTHER MARINE INTERESTS ARE URGED TO CONTINUE TO EXERCISE CAUTION IN ANY SEA RELATED ACTIVITIES.

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service will continue to closely monitor sea conditions and will inform the public in a timely manner, of any weather related conditions which may adversely affect our islands."
