TRINIDAD and Tobago is not under tropical storm watch from Bret but continues to experience heavy rainfall today (Thursday, June 23, 2023).

In an update at 11 am, the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) issued a forecast for Thursday afternoon predicting conditions to continue to be cloudy with showers or rain and a medium to high chance (60%-70%) for occasional heavy showers or thunderstorms to develop.

TTMS stated, “As tropical storm Bret continues to move to the west of the Lesser Antilles, it has induced a trough over our area and the trailing inflow has been drawing air from the south-southeast across Trinidad and Tobago, causing moisture convergence. This has resulted in ongoing showers and rain over broad areas and heavy showers or thunderstorms in a few areas, from early this morning.”

Tropical storm Bret is currently on its way to the west of the lesser Antilles. 

Tropical Storm Cindy 

Additionally, TTMS also announced that Tropical Depression #4 has strengthened into tropical storm Cindy overnight. 

The centre of tropical storm Cindy has been located approximately 1,500 km (930 miles) east of the lesser Antilles, moving west-northwest at 24 km/h.

Again, the TTMA advised that currently, Cindy poses no immediate or direct threat to Trinidad and Tobago. 

And a Tropical Wave is located in the equatorial Atlantic with its axis approximately 3,500 km to the east.

The TTMS stated it continues to monitor all weather conditions.
