Expected Weather for Second Dekad (11th– 20th) of October 2019 and Likely Impact on Agriculture. The forecast for the second dekad of October indicates that farmers can expect similar conditions as compared to the first dekad of October. Expect relatively wet days on days 11th, 12th, 13th, 15th, 16th and wet days on days 14th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th. On relatively wet days, there is a high probability of isolated thundershowers along the western coast of both islands, especially over urban areas of Trinidad during the dekad. On wet days, a possible visitation of an active Tropical wave (TW) in conjunction with the Inter Tropical Conversion Zone (ITCZ) will produce widespread cloudy periods with scattered showers and thundershowers over Trinidad and Tobago. The forecasted ten-day period rainfall totals to range between 100.0 mm and 120.0 mm in Trinidad and Tobago. The average daily temperatures across Trinidad and Tobago are likely to range between 26.4 0C and 28.5 0C. Expect the highest maximum temperature over the first dekad to peak near 34.3 oC in Trinidad, while the lowest night to early morning minimum temperature could fall below 22.6 0C.
