Official Statement #3 Active Atlantic Tropical Wave approaches Lesser Antilles
 
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has been closely monitoring an active tropical wave in the Atlantic, with the leading edge now approximately 400 km east of the Lesser Antilles. The wave has a low chance of development (20%) over the next 48 hours.
 
The system is moving towards the west near 25 km/hr. Latest analyses indicate that on the projected track, it should begin moving across the southern Eastern Caribbean islands from overnight tonight into Sunday 30th August, 2020. Regardless of development, this system will likely produce gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall across the southern Leeward and Windward islands between tonight and Sunday 30th August 2020 and across Trinidad and Tobago from Sunday afternoon into Monday 31st August 2020.
 
The TTMS will continue to closely monitor this system and will issue an update at 9:00 am tomorrow o r e a rlie r if t h e s it u a t io n w a r r a n t s . As always, pay close attention to information being issued by the TTMS by visiting www.metoffice.gov.tt, downloading our mobile app (search: TT Met Ofce) and following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
