Alert: Tropical Wave Approaching Jamaica

A Tropical Wave is currently positioned just east of Jamaica, according to Jamaica’s Meteorological Service, and is expected to move across the island later today, progressing westward by Saturday.

This weather system is generating extensive showers and thunderstorms as it traverses the central Caribbean, likely leading to unstable weather conditions over Jamaica during this period.

Due to recent rainfall from Hurricane Beryl and resulting ground saturation, there is a high risk of flooding and landslides.

Additionally, windy conditions are anticipated to intensify starting Saturday due to the presence of a Low-Level Jet Stream.



This Morning: Isolated showers across sections of south-central and eastern parishes, otherwise cloudy.

This Afternoon: Becoming cloudy with widely scattered showers and thunderstorms across sections of most parishes. Windy along coastal areas.

Tonight: Isolated showers especially across sections of southern and northeastern parishes, otherwise mostly cloudy.

Maximum temperature expected for Kingston today… 32 degrees Celsius
Maximum temperature expected for Montego Bay today… 32 degrees Celsius

3-DAY FORECAST (Starting Tomorrow):

Saturday: Morning showers and likely thunderstorms mainly across eastern and south central parishes, otherwise cloudy. Scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms across sections of most parishes. Windy


Sunday & Monday: Partly cloudy morning across eastern parishes. Isolated afternoon showers and likely thunderstorms across western parishes and hilly areas. Windy.
