Trinidad Express /
THE Meteorological Office this afternoon said there was early morning inclement weather that affected mainly Tobago and eastern coastal areas of Trinidad has slowly improved.
Significant weather activity associated with the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) continues to remain active just east of Trinidad and Tobago as it is being influenced by a near- stationary, well- defined upper level trough. However, there is a 60% (medium) chance that there will be a change in the upper level trough position, resulting in an increase in rainfall over the next 18 to 24 hours.
The Met office said that analyses show that Trinidad and Tobago can experience intermittent cloudy conditions accompanied by periods of light to moderate showers or rain, some heavy at times, and the occasional thundershower mainly from tomorrow morning.
Although prolonged rainfall is not forecast, localized street or flash flooding is likely in heavy downpours. Due to the state of water-logged grounds, additional rainfall may cause a faster than normal accumulation of water especially in southern areas of Trinidad. Gusty winds may be experienced in the vicinity of heavier showers or thundershowers. There is also the continuing likelihood of landslides/landslips in areas so prone.
