There's been some improvement in the sea conditions along the northern coastlines in Trinidad and the sheltered coastlines in Tobago. However the numerical weather prediction models continue to forecast northerly swells with periods or wave intervals in excess of 13 seconds. 
This was confirmed in a release from the Met Office at 10am.
It said the swells will gradually decrease over the next 24 to 36 hours. 
It went on to say the long period of swells may be low amplitude but as they approach shallow waters the wave heights can increase sharply.
Consequently there will be a localized disruption to sea bathing and near shore coastal activities and all marine interests are advised to take caution.
The met office said conditions are affected due to the recent peak in spring tides and therefore will be aggravated during high tides and on Thursday evening at about 6:45.
