T&T Met Office Bulletin 5: AREA OF DISTURBED WEATHER ASSOCIATED WITH AN ACTIVE TROPICAL WAVE ABOUT 100KM EAST OF THE SOUTHERN WINDWARD ISLANDS.

Date: Friday 12th of October 2012
ISSUED AT:06:15AM

At 5:00 am today, the area of disturbed weather
associated with an active Tropical Wave was
located approximately 100 km to the east of the
southern Windward Islands. Its movement is
towards the northwest near 25 km/hr.
Environmental conditions continues to be
marginally conducive for further development.

Although instability associated with the proximity
of the system to our islands has been minimal
overnight, its presence is more likely to be felt
sometime today. As a result, light to moderate and
at times heavy showers can be expected with the
occasional thundershower, which may become
intense.

Rainfall accumulations of between 30 – 40
millimeters or even greater in some locations are
anticipated from this rainfall event. Gusty winds
in excess of 45km/hr will accompany heavy
showers/thundershowers. Landslips/landslides are
likely along slopes of the northern range. Rivers
of moderate carrying capacities may become
inundated.

Citizens are advised to be vigilant and cautious
given forecast weather conditions. Be alert to
any electrical discharges from thunderclouds and
adopt measures which would preserve life and
property.

WE STRONGLY UNDERSCORE THAT TRINIDAD & TOBAGO IS
NOT UNDER ANY TROPICAL STORM THREAT, WATCH OR
WARNING AT THIS TIME.

The Trinidad & Tobago Meteorological Service is
closely monitoring weather conditions and will
issue another bulletin at 6:00 pm or sooner if
the situation warrants.
