The government of Trinidad and Tobago has cancelled the Tropical Storm Warning for Tobago and Grenada as the system has weakened into a Tropical Depression.

As at 2 pm the centre of Tropical Depression Gonzalo was estimated to be near latitude 10.8 North, longitude 61.9 West.

Gonzalo is moving toward the west near 20 mph (32 km/h). A general westward to west-northwestward motion is expected today and tonight.

On the forecast track, Gonzalo or its remnants will move across the southeastern Caribbean Sea today and Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. The system is forecast to dissipate by Sunday night, if not sooner.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1010 mb (29.82 inches).

Gusty conditions associated with squalls will be possible across the southern Windward Islands for the rest of the afternoon.

These squalls will spread westward across the southeastern Caribbean Sea through Sunday.

Gonzalo is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 2 to 4 inches over Trinidad and Tobago and far northeastern Venezuela. Gonzalo is also expected to produce 1 to 3 inches over
the southern Windward Islands, the Leeward Antilles, and the remainder of far northern Venezuela.

This includes Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao. Isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches are possible in the mountainous terrain of Trinidad and Tobago and far northeastern Venezuela, which may lead to flash flooding.
