Subject: Declaration of the Start of the 2016 Rainy Season for Trinidad and Tobago
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service is officially declaring the start of the 2016 Rainy Season following an uncharacteristically early influence from the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) yesterday 01 May, 2016. Once the initial episode of rainfall activity is triggered by the ITCZ or a Tropical Wave, it signals the start of the country’s rainy season since these features will be the mainstay for the next five (5) months in yielding rainfall.
Based on a careful re-assessment of the weather event which occurred yesterday, it is now confirmed that a Southern Hemisphere polar surge positively modulated the ITCZ over Trinidad and Tobago. This moist, unstable environment along with significantly enhanced upper level conditions produced the much welcomed early season rainfall. Over the 30-hour period beginning at 2:00 am (Sunday 01st May 2016), the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service recorded 77.6 millimeters of rainfall at Piarco, Trinidad with higher rainfall accumulations occurring in other localities.
Preliminary analysis indicates that for June to December most of Trinidad and Tobago is likely to be wetter than usual.
At present, the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone is not firmly established over Trinidad and Tobago, and has already started retrograding south of our islands to its climatological position. Consequently, there may be a reprieve in rainfall activity over the next few weeks following this episode. The stay, however, will be short lived especially with the expected start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season on 01st June 2016. Preliminarily, the Atlantic Basin Seasonal Hurricane Forecast for 2016 is likely to be average, with the expected formation of 12 named storms, 5 hurricanes and 2 major hurricane (Categories 3 and above). Historically, the averages for named storms, hurricanes and major hurricanes are 12, 7 and 2 respectively. However, it should be noted that for any country all it takes is one tropical cyclone making landfall for that country to experience an active hurricane season.
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service wishes to reassure the national community, that in keeping with our mandate, we continue to closely monitor weather conditions around Trinidad and Tobago and will continue to advise the general public in a timely manner, about impending adverse weather conditions which are likely to affect our islands.
The public, relevant agencies and ministries are advised to adopt measures to mitigate the potential impacts of the Rainy Season. Visit us at: http://www.metoffice.gov.tt/ or our facebook page for the latest seasonal outlook, as well as daily weather updates at 6 am, 10 am, 3 pm, and 6 pm.
