Weather: Trinidad and Tobago will experience wind, thunderstorms and morning showers in the coming five days. The Met Service announced that the country would also witness partly cloudy to cloudy weather. 

Thursday: Continuing wind and moisture convergence from the southeast will produce pre-dawn and early morning showers in a few areas, with a medium to high chance (50%-70%) for thunderstorm activity, favouring but not confined to, northwestern, western, and southern areas of Trinidad. 

As the day progresses, conditions will become relatively fairer but with light to moderate showers over some areas. There remains a medium chance (40%) for an afternoon heavy shower or thunderstorm to develop. Winds generally from the east-southeast to east.

Friday: Ongoing low-level convergence and daytime heating are likely to interrupt some sunshine with partly cloudy to cloudy periods and light to moderate showers over varying areas. There is a medium chance (40%-60%) for a heavy shower or thunderstorm in a few areas. 

As the late night progresses, with the approach of a trough, associated with the ITCZ, instability increases. Daytime winds mostly from the southeast to east will change to east-northeast during the evening and night.

Saturday: The front end of a trough, associated with the ITCZ, will bring instability from pre-dawn or early morning, with cloudy periods continuing into the afternoon. Light to moderate showers or rain can be expected with a moderate to high chance (60%-80%) for heavy showers or thunderstorms. 

Settled conditions during the late afternoon, evening, and night but with lingering showers in a few areas. The trough’s axis is estimated to pass during the evening. Winds generally from the northeast during the day will change to the southeast by late night.

Sunday: Trailing convergence from the recently passed trough is likely to produce partly cloudy to cloudy periods during the early morning to early afternoon, with a medium chance (40%-60%) for a heavy shower or thunderstorm in a few areas. Settled conditions from late afternoon. Winds from the south-southeast will change to northeast by evening.

Monday: Ahead of the axis of another approaching trough, associated with the ITCZ, instability will again begin to increase, bringing partly cloudy to cloudy periods with light to moderate showers or rain over most areas, and a medium to high chance (50%-70%) for heavy showers or thunderstorms in some areas.

The axis of this trough is estimated to pass late Monday night or early Tuesday morning. Winds mainly from the northeast to east-northeast.

In the event of heavy showers or thunderstorms, street or flash flooding is likely, and winds can become gusty in the vicinity.

Saharan dust: An increase in Saharan dust from mild concentrations to moderate is expected from tomorrow, Thursday 29th, and over the weekend.
