Met Office: Brace for bad weather today
Strong winds and thundery showers were expected to begin affecting the country last night and more bad weather is predicted for today. The weather is associated with the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) situated to the south-east of T&T, according to a release from the Met Services yesterday. The Met Office predicted an increase in wind speeds and cloudy conditions with periods of rain and showers, some of which could be moderate to heavy and thundery at times.
These conditions are expected to begin to improve later today. “The ITCZ will begin to affect the islands with increasing wind speeds and cloudiness as the night progresses and continuing into tomorrow (today).” The Met Office predicted gusty winds in excess of 45km/h and the possibility of street and flash flooding. “Given the expected conditions, citizens are therefore advised to be vigilant and cautious as they conduct their activities and to pay attention to daily public weather forecasts issued at 6 am, 10 am, 3 pm and 5.30 pm.” The Met Office emphasised that T&T was not under any tropical storm threat, watch or warning.
