As 2018 comes to an end and 2019 approaches, the negative impacts of climate change will continue to increase.
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Services issued their report for the outlook of the Dry Season climate which runs from January to May 2019. For the first half of 2019, we can expect a harsh Dry Season where rainfall is predicted to be very scarce.
Days and nights will be warmer than normal and there is expected to be a larger number of hot days in late February to May with increased warm spells. The impacts of this severe Dry Season will lead to water shortages, extreme dryness with prolonged dry periods and even short-term drought.
