Heavy rains forecast for the weekend

Rains, which will be heavy at times, have been forecast for most parishes starting today into Monday.

The Meteorological Service says a Trough and an active Tropical Wave are expected to move into the central Caribbean today and linger across Jamaica over the weekend.

The Met Office says atmospheric conditions are therefore expected to become unstable across the island starting this evening.

As a result, periods of light to moderate, and at times heavy showers and thunderstorms, are forecast to occur across sections of most parishes, especially during the afternoon on Sunday and Monday.

The Met Office says it will continue to monitor the situation.
