Created : 19 July 2017
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service has indicated that Tropical Storm Don weakened overnight and at 11:00PM on Tuesday night, degenerated to a trough that is now to the west of Trinidad and Tobago, over the Caribbean Sea. This system no longer poses a threat as it moves away from the Winward Islands.
The Met Office has advised that Trinidad and Tobago can expect initially cloudy periods with light to moderate showers in varying localities giving way to mostly sunny conditions toward midday despite the odd shower during the afternoon mostly near hilly and western areas. There is a medium (60%) chance of a heavy shower or thundershower favouring the south western peninsula of Trinidad.
In the event of a thundershower, gusty winds may be experienced and street and flash flooding is likely in areas of moderate to heavy downpours.
The Met Office has emphasised that at this time Trinidad and Tobago is not under any tropical cyclone watch or warning.
