News day / In a notice, the TT Meteorological Service said the warning was also in effect for Grenada and its dependencies. This means that these islands will be exposed to tropical storm conditions from tonight into tomorrow. The disturbance is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 50 to 125 millimetres.



The Met Service said gusty winds and street/flash flooding are likely in areas of heavy showers or thundershowers. The possibility of landslides/landslips also exists. Sea conditions are also anticipated to become very disturbed which will adversely affect marine and coastline interests.



The last time this country was placed under a tropical storm warning was in October 2010 with Tropical Storm Tomas which eventually steered clear of the island.



The storm instead hit Barbados before hitting St Lucia as a category one hurricane.



At about 5 pm, potential tropical cyclone #2 was centred near 7.5 degrees north latitude, 50.4 degree west longitude or about 1200 kilometres east-southeast of Trinidad.



The Met Service explained that a potential tropical cyclone refers to a disturbance that has not yet become a tropical cyclone, but which poses the threat of bringing tropical storm or hurricane conditions to land areas within 48 hours. As of yesterday potential tropical cyclone #2 was moving to the west at about 37 km per hour. The disturbance was expected to continue on west-northwest track over the next 48 hours during which it is forecast to intensify as environmental conditions are conducive for strengthening.



The Met Service advised citizens to follow the directions and advice of their disaster emergency managers.



They also advised citizens to adopt necessary measures to preserve life and property. They said another bulletin will be issued at 12 am today.



Earlier yesterday, meteorologist Kiran Sedoo told Newsday that as of 2 pm, the area of disturbed weather that is associated with a tropical wave was about 800 miles east south east of the Southern Windward Islands. He said the system had become better organised.



"Some additional development is possible within the next couple of days," Sedoo said. "But the latest information reaching our office right now, the formation chance through the next 48 hours is 70 percent, a bit on the higher side, and the formation chance for the next five days is even higher at 90 percent." The system is forecast to move west northwest near 20 mph towards the Windward Islands.



"But we want to underscore it is still very disorganised. It is still at a tropical wave stage of development but regardless of any development that happens later on, we can anticipate local heavy rains and gusty winds with thundershower activity as well. And this should be expected by Monday night into Tuesday morning." Also as a result of the strong winds associated with this system, Sedoo said sea conditions are expected to be exacerbated as well and one can expect the effect of those rising sea conditions from this afternoon. This is expected to persist for the next 24 to 30 hours.



In an earlier bulletin the TT Met Service informed citizens on the deterioration of sea conditions along the island's coastlines in 24 to 30 hours. They said the sea state was forecast to become more agitated today with waves reaching three metres and above along coastlines of TT, especially the northern, eastern and southern coasts. The TT Met Service said these rough seas will continue into tomorrow and will be exacerbated during high tide.



They advised fisher-folk and citizens residing along coastal areas are asked to be on the alert for these expected sea conditions.
