There’s a High Pressure Ridge and a Low-Level Jet across the region.
The Met Office says a strong High Pressure System across the north Atlantic is extending a Ridge and sustaining a Low-Level Jet Stream across much of the Caribbean Basin, including Jamaica.
The Ridge and Low-Level Jet should remain the dominant features through to early Friday, when a Pre-Frontal Trough is expected to move into the vicinity of the island.
This morning into this afternoon expect partly cloudy conditions mainly across northern and hilly inland areas.
Tonight will be fair and windy along coastal areas.
A Small Craft Warning is in effect for inshore and offshore areas of the north and south coasts due to strong winds and rough seas.
Maximum temperature expected for Kingston and Montego Bay today is 30 degrees Celsius.
