Hail, gusty winds and a funnel cloud reported in Trinidad today


    Hail, a funnel cloud and gusty winds – all of these were reported today across parts of Trinidad.

    And according to the MET Service, they are all associated with the phenomenon: thunderstorms.

    The report of hail in Carlsen Field has particularly caused a stir, however the MET Service says it has been unable to get photographic evidence.

    103.1FM News spoke with Meteorologist Jean-Marc Rampersad.

    Mr Rampersad adds that while it is unusual to have these events all happening on the same day, they can be expected during the local rainy season.

    As for tomorrow’s forecast, Mr Rampersad expects hot and sunny conditions in the morning, followed by afternoon showers.
