Met Office discontinues rough seas warning

The Met Office has discontinued the rough seas warning it issued last week.

It is still advising caution at the sea.

The following is a statement by the Met Office today;

"Buoy data as well as reports reaching the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) indicate that rough seas in open waters around Trinidad and Tobago have improved.

The strong winds that were the primary cause of rough sea conditions have decreased, with a corresponding decrease in wave heights.

The TTMS is therefore discontinuing further statements with regard to this rough seas event. 

While the sea conditions may no longer be highly agitated due to strong winds, conditions may still be breezy at times.

AS A PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE, SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS, SEA BATHERS AND ALL OTHER MARINE INTERESTS SHOULD CONTINUE TO EXERCISE CAUTION IN ANY SEA RELATED ACTIVITIES.

The TTMS will continue to closely monitor sea conditions and will inform the public in a timely manner, of any adverse weather conditions which may affect our islands. 

TTMS weather updates may be accessed by visiting www.metoffice.gov.tt, downloading our mobile app (search: TT Met Office) and following us on Facebook and Twitter. "
