Tropical Storm Isaac heads for Lesser Antilles

Wednesday, August 22 2012

The ninth tropical depression this year was upgraded to Tropical Storm Isaac yesterday evening.

In a bulletin yesterday, the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service said Isaac was moving toward the west at 28 km per hour and this general motion was expected to continue during the next 48 hours. Maximum sustained winds are near 65 km per hour with higher gusts.

Isaac is expected to move through the Central Lesser Antilles this evening an emerge in the Caribbean Sea by tomorrow morning.

They noted the tropical storm posed no threat to Trinidad and Tobago (TT), Grenada and its dependencies. However, associated cloudiness with showers and thundershowers will extend over the southern Windwards including TT, as the system tracks across the Lesser Antilles. A meteorologist yesterday said from last night into today TT was expected to experience light to moderate showers. He said there was a possibility that a thundershower may occur but would most likely affect the northern part of Tobago

In the bulletin, the meteorological service said the Numerical Weather Prediction models have indicated that as early as this morning, surface winds will be out of the west as the system approaches the island chain and as such, seas in sheltered areas can become choppy. They advised citizens to monitor the movement of Isaac through media reports as the storm moves closer to the Northern Windward and Leeward Islands.
