Eastern and central parishes of Jamaica are now experiencing moderate to heavy showers as Hurricane Irma passes north of the island.

The Meteorological Service says a Trough associated with the system is now across Jamaica.

The Met Office says the Trough is expected to remain in the vicinity of the island for the rest of the weekend.

It says the country should continue to expect periods of showers and thunderstorms as well as cloudy conditions through to Sunday.

A Small Craft Warning is in effect for offshore areas of the north coast due to strong winds and rough seas in the vicinity of showers and thunderstorms.
