By Aaron Humes: According to Loop News, the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service is tracking an approaching tropical wave currently moving towards the twin-island republic.
Residents should expect an increase in cloudiness and a 60 percent or better chance of thunderstorms and/or heavy showers as it crosses, along with an increase in low-level wind speed and wind gusts through Friday evening.
Meanwhile in this area, all eyes are on the large area of disturbed weather that formed partially from the remnants of Eastern Pacific storm Agatha, interacting with an upper-level trough over the Gulf of Mexico.
Forecasts call for this system to become a tropical depression by Friday as it moves northeastward across the Yucatan Peninsula, northwestern Caribbean Sea and southeastern Gulf of Mexico.
The National Hurricane Center estimates chances of a system forming at 40 percent through the next 48 hours but 70 percent over the next few days.
Locally heavy rainfall is expected in northern Belize, southeastern Mexico, the Yucatan and Guatemala for the next few days, spreading across western Cuba, southern Florida, and the Florida Keys on Friday and Saturday.
It makes for an active start to the hurricane season, which officially begins tomorrow, Wednesday.
