The Meteorological Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for low-lying and flood-prone areas of Portland, St. Mary, Kingston and St. Andrew and St. Catherine effective until 5:00 a.m. tomorrow.

The Met Office says a Trough system across the Jamaica and the southwestern Caribbean Sea continues to produce unstable weather conditions across the island.

This has result in moderate to heavy showers across the island with the heavier showers being recorded over eastern parishes based on automatic weather station reports.

The forecast is for a continuation of the showers and thunderstorms especially over eastern parishes this evening into tonight.

Flash flooding is therefore a possibility over low-lying and flood-prone areas of the eastern and south-central parishes.

The Meteorological Service will continue to monitor the situation.
