Yesterday afternoon, the Meteorological (Met) Service issued a Flash Flood Watch for low-lying and flood-prone areas of all parishes, effective until 5:00 pm on Saturday.

According to the Met Service, unstable atmospheric conditions associated with a trough over the central Caribbean is expected to influence weather conditions across Jamaica until Sunday.

Projections are for moderate to heavy, and at times very heavy showers, to affect sections of most parishes, especially northern parishes through Sunday.

A Flash Flood Watch means that flash flooding is possible and residents are advised to take precautionary measures and be ready for quick action if flooding is observed or if a Warning is issued by the Met Service.

The Meteorological Service will continue to monitor the situation.

Last month, heavy rains hammered several parts of the island reportedly resulting in losses and damage to the tune of close to half a billion dollars.
