Published:Friday | April 22, 2016 | 4:42 PM

The Meteorological Service has issued a flash flood warning for low-lying and flood prone areas of eastern parishes until 5 o'clock Saturday morning.

A flash flood warning means that flash flooding has been reported or will occur shortly.

Motorists and pedestrians are advised not attempt to cross flooded roadways or other low-lying areas; be on the alert for rising waters and be ready to move to higher ground.

The Met Service says the weather is being influenced by a trough across Jamaica and the central Caribbean.

The trough is expected to continue to influence weather conditions until Sunday.
