Jamaica to Experience More Showers and Thunderstorms This Week

Jamaicans are advised to prepare for an increased amount of rainfall in the coming week as meteorologists once again anticipate showers and thunderstorms over the next few days.

The Meteorological Service has reported that a wide trough presently positioned across the southwestern Caribbean is projected to move across Jamaica early Wednesday morning, remaining over the island until the weekend. This weather system will result in unstable atmospheric conditions.

The forecast predicts mostly cloudy conditions with intermittent periods of showers and thunderstorms throughout the majority of parishes, starting early Wednesday morning and persisting for the rest of the week. At times, the rainfall may be heavy, accompanied by occasional gusty winds.

The Meteorological Service has issued a cautionary message for fishers and other marine interests, as sea conditions are expected to deteriorate in areas affected by showers, thunderstorms, and gusty winds.


Let’s take a look at the three-day weather forecast starting Wednesday, as provided by the Meteorological Service:

Wednesday/Thursday: Expect cloudy skies with periods of showers and thunderstorms across most parishes, particularly in the eastern and central regions. It will be windy during this period.

Friday: Anticipate cloudy conditions with periods of showers and thunderstorms, primarily affecting eastern and central parishes.

Additionally, there is a Tropical Wave present in the southeastern Caribbean.
