Met Office: Bad weather ahead

News day / A release from the TT Meteorological Service (TTMS) shortly before noon yesterday said that at the time, the area of disturbed weather was located about 850 kilometres east of the southern Windward islands.

“Even if the system does not develop into a tropical cyclone, the greater part of the activity is expected to affect the southern Windward islands north of Tobago,” the release said. All interests in Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada and its dependencies are being asked to monitor the progress of the system and pay close attention to information being issued by the TTMS on its website,, mobile app (search: TT Met Office) and on Twitter and Facebook.

The TTMS is also reminding citizens that the hurricane season is on and adequate preparation is advised. The TTMS said, it will be closely monitoring this system as it moves across the Tropical Atlantic Ocean and will issue another bulletin within 24 hours or earlier if the situation warrants.

Head of the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) Capt (Ret) Neville Wint urged citizens to heed the met office weather bulletins.

He said with there was no need to panic but to take necessary safety precautions. Any tropical depression or tropical storm to pass this way tonight or tomorrow, he said, will most likely affect north east Trinidad and residents are asked to be vigilant.
