The Meteorological Service has continued the 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 p.m. today.

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

Although satellite imagery and rainfall reports indicated reduced rainfall last night throughout this morning, the forecast is for mostly cloudy conditions with periods of showers and thunderstorms to continue to affect sections of most parishes today especially during the afternoon.

Flash flooding is therefore possible over some low-lying and flood prone areas.
