Copy of warning given on Liquid Sunshine in advance of sever weather ... for the record ...
WEATHER WARNING – 13th NOVEMBER 2005 … 0930 GMT.
SEVERE WEATHER EXPECTED LATER TODAY, OVERNIGHT AND THROUGH MONDAY
I have continued to monitor the ‘small’ circulation to the east of Tobago.
This has now expanded into a much larger area of stormy weather producing thunderstorms and, judging by the outflow, strong winds.
The system is being monitored by the NOAA for further development over the next 36 hours.
This is a potentially dangerous and fledgling system that is expected to affect Trinidad, Tobago, Grenada, Barbados and as far north as St Lucia.
I am concerned that this system has survived very strong westerly shear and this therefore makes other aspects of the local environment very suitable for Tropical Storm development.
I would recommend that precautions are taken by everyone in Tobago in preparation for some intense and persistent rainfall together with the prospect of very strong and gusty winds over the next 48 hours.
In other words, try to avoid trips and stay near to your bases … just in case.
I will provide further updates as I monitor the progress of this system.
