The Adverse Weather Alert for T&T has been discontinued by the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS).

According to the Met Service:

“Latest data and analysis indicate less intense convective activity than previously forecasted. There still exists, however, the possibility of heavy showers or isolated thunderstorms in a few areas this afternoon.”

Showers and gusty winds are affecting parts of eastern Trinidad on Monday afternoon. Rainfall over the last three days has favoured eastern Trinidad, causing flooding across parts of Mayaro. Gusty winds also caused irreparable damage to large satellite receivers owned and operated by a local satellite TV provider, MCTV Digital.

The Met Service’s forecast at 10:00 am had stated:

“Partly cloudy periods with showers will occur in varying localities and heavy showers or thunderstorms in few areas. Conditions expected to settle by late afternoon to give a mostly clear night. Showery spells will occur in few areas towards dawn.”

The Met Service is still advising the public to continue to monitor conditions and updates from official sources.

Note that king tides are also ongoing, meaning some of the highest high tides for the year are anticipated today through Wednesday.

This can produce minor coastal flooding in low-lying coastal areas such as the South Trunk Road, Mosquito Creek, and across Mayaro’s beach access roads during high tide periods. Today’s next high tide is forecast at 4:38 pm.
