Flash Flood Watch announced

October 26, 2017
Flooding during recent heavy rains across Jamaica.

The Meteorological Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for low-lying and flood-prone areas of all parishes.

It is effective until 5 a.m. tomorrow.

A Cold Front across the western Caribbean continues to produce unstable weather conditions across Jamaica.

Satellite imagery and radar reports indicate that periods light to moderate, and at times heavy showers and thunderstorms affected mainly southern parishes today.

Projections are for showers and thunderstorms to continue affecting sections of most parishes tonight. Flash flooding is therefore a possibility over some low-lying and flood-prone areas of all parishes.
