The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has discontinued the Hazardous Seas Alert/YELLOW Level which was activated on Tuesday this week, to cover nearshore areas of Tobago as well as northern areas of Trinidad. 

The latest Met Service advisory indicates that the alert status now stands at GREEN, after the alert was discontinued just after 7:00 am today, Thursday 18 November 2021.

The advisory states that long period swells are no longer having an adverse impact on near-shore areas of both islands. However, caution is still advised as Spring Tides are in effect.

Forecasters are describing seas as Moderate.  Waves are expected to be 1.5 metres to 2.0 metres in open waters, and near 1 metre and at times choppy in sheltered areas.

As such, the Met Service is encouraging all marine interests to continue monitoring coastal sea conditions and exercise caution.

There will be periods of rain during the course of the day, with occasional light or moderate showers/rain in some areas. There is the likelihood of heavier showers in some areas during the afternoon.
