A Hurricane Hunter, a U.S. Air Force Reserve Reconnaissance Aircraft, is scheduled to investigate the disturbance on Tuesday afternoon.
Whether the system intensifies or not the leading end of the system should begin affecting Trinidad and Tobago by Tuesday night and continue to grow into Wednesday.
There is an 80 % chance that moderate to heavy showers will occur along with isolated thundershowers capable of producing 25 to 50 mm of rainfall.
These downpours can yield moderate to severe street or flash flooding and strong gusty winds in excess of 55 km/h. While showery activities can yield in excess of 50 to 75 mm of rainfall from Wednesday into Thursday.
It is anticipated that the sea will become very disturbed and therefore adversely affect marine and coastline interests. Waves will rise in excess of 3.0 metres in open waters and be very choppy in sheltered areas.
All interests in Trinidad and in Tobago are asked to pay attention to the high possibility of these severe weather conditions occurring and to adopt measures which would safeguard lives and property.
Close attention also needs to be paid to information being issued by the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service.
