Met Office maintains yellow alert as Tropical Wave set to pass north of T&T

The Met Office has maintained a yellow weather alert for Trinidad and Tobago, as a Tropical Wave which now has just a 10 percent chance of formation, is set to pass north of Trinidad.

The Met Office says that Trinidad and Tobago would be mostly sunny at first but becoming variably cloudy as the day progresses with periods of rain/showers in varying localities.

It says showers will become heavy and thundery in a few areas.

It notes that tonight would be mostly settled with a few overnight showers and adds that gusty winds, street/flash flooding is likely in areas of heavy showers/thundershowers.

Meanwhile, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says the tropical wave continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms. 

It says environmental conditions are only marginally conducive, and significant development of this system is not anticipated. 

The disturbance is moving westward at about 15 mph and is forecast to move through the Windward Islands on Saturday, where it could bring locally heavy rainfall to portions of the Lesser Antilles during the next couple of days.

It has a 10 percent chance of formation over the next 2 to 5 days.
