SEVERE WEATHER INFORMATION NUMBER EIGHT (8) – DEVELOPING TROPICAL DISTURBANCE WITHIN THE REGION

ISSUED BY THE SAMOA METEOROLOGY DIVISION AT 5:00PM

MONDAY 17th FEBRUARY 2020

 

… WIND WARNING FOR ALL OF SAMOA …

… HEAVY RAIN WARNING FOR SAMOA …

…FLOOD WARNING FOR ALL MAJOR RIVERS AND VULNERABLE AREAS…

…COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR SAMOA…..

…SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR ALL COASTAL WATERS…

 

A broad area of low pressure system with an extensive cloud band and gale winds is now located over Samoa. As of 2:00pm this afternoon, there are two developing low pressure systems along this area of active convective  near the island to the Northwest of Savai'i and the other to southeast of Tutuila whereas Tropical disturbance 07F (07F)  remains near Tuvalu.


Currently the most active system is situated to the southeast. This system is expected to maintain its southeast movement within the next 24hours with slight development. The low pressure system to the Northwest of Sava'ii may follow the similar path. But, the associated active convergence links to both system is most likely to bring damaging gusty winds, torrential rain and damaging heavy swells this evening towards tomorrow.  


Tropical disturbance 07F remains as a weak low-level circulation and has a low potential to develop into a Tropical cyclone within the next 24-48hours.

 

Potential Impacts:
Heavy downpours with poor visibility, strong and gusty winds with flying objects, foggy and slippery roads over mountain passes and ranges, strong river outflow and landslides, pooling near roadsides and waterways. Strong currents as well as rough seas and coastal inundation. Uproot breakable trees.

 

(The next severe weather information will be issued at 5:00 am early tomorrow morning)
