A tropical wave is passing over Trinidad and Tobago tonight and it will result in partly cloudy to cloudy conditions and scattered showers and the medium to high chance of isolated thundershowers. Gusty winds, street and flash flooding may occur. This was the forecast for today given by Piarco duty meteorologist Paula Wellington yesterday.

Wellington added: “Sunday’s showery activity and thunderstorms occurred along the western parts of the country. It was hot in Piarco. We are in a tropical climate. Trinidad and Tobago is still within the rainy and hurricane seasons.”


Faced with mounting allegations of a cover-up, Attorney General Faris al-Rawi yesterday released a redacted version of Douglas Mendes’s legal opinion and announced that the report into allegations of sexual harassment against former minister Darryl Smith has been dumped.
