The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring another tropical disturbance approximately 1000 miles east of the Windward Islands.

In their Tropical Weather Outlook issued at 2:00 PM Monday, the shower activity associated with this broad area of low pressure, designated INVEST 92L, located about 1000 miles east of the Windward Islands has changed little in organization since this morning.

According to the NHC, “environmental conditions are expected to become somewhat more favorable for development during the next few days and a tropical depression or tropical storm is likely to form during that time frame.”

Based on the present guidance from the NHC, this system is forecast to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph and it could bring heavy rain to portions of the Leeward Islands by late Wednesday, regardless of development.

For Trinidad and Tobago, given the large size of this tropical disturbance, regardless of development, increased chances for showers and thunderstorms are forecast on Wednesday through Friday.

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service, in a statement on Monday morning maintains that, “current analyses suggest that on its projected track, the centre of the system is forecast to reach the Leeward Islands by the night of Wednesday 29th July, 2020. At this time, the system poses no direct threat to Trinidad and Tobago.
