We extend our deepest gratitude to Paul Tallet, a regular visitor to Tobago, for his weekly weather forecasts. Paul is an amateur weather enthusiast who does his best to provide a simple guide to the Tobago weather outlook each week. It is therefore only fair to state the disclaimer that neither Paul, nor this website, can guarantee the accuracy of these weather reports.
Tobago lies outside the main hurricane belt, so hurricanes are not a major issue, normally. However, hurricanes further north can affect the island. So, Paul also provides regular warning and updates on impending storm conditions.
Normal weather reports will be found in the Liquid Sunshine topic of our forum. Hurricane warnings can be found in the Hurricane Season topic of the forum. The most recent updates are provided below.

WEATHER ... 11TH NOVEMBER 2018
It seems that an active week lies ahead for the Caribbean with a procession of tropical waves on the way and a small disturbance is just ahead of the first wave (I will post on this later in the 2018 Hurricane forum).
The pressure gradients are also expected to tighten from the middle of the coming week and this will bring heavy surf to some areas, particularly along the southern areas of the Caribbean.
For Tobago the weather could be quite unsettled from time to time as these tropical waves pass from the Atlantic side and into the Caribbean Sea.
Expect sunny weather in between. The first tropical wave should arrive late Monday.

A vigorous tropical wave will arrive across the Windward Islands by late Monday. There is a disturbance associated with this Wave that the NHC are issuing advisories on, giving a 50% chance of development into a tropical storm within the next 5 days.
The disturbance is likely to move north east maybe just brushing the northernmost Leeward Islands and posing a threat to the Bahamas and possibly Puerto Rico.
I am hoping that this is the last spike of energy for the 2018 Hurricane season that ends on 30th November ... but all interests in the Caribbean should remain vigilant to the end.
I will post updates should this disturbance maintain a threat.
