KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Jamaica Meteorological Service (Met Service) is advising the public to expect increased rainfall beginning on Thursday through the weekend.

According to the Met Service, a trough is expected to move into the central Caribbean on Thursday and linger in the vicinity of Jamaica through to the weekend.

The Trough is projected to produce unstable weather conditions across the island beginning on Thursday afternoon, and lasting through to Sunday.

“As the system lingers near Jamaica, projections are for cloudy conditions with periods of showers and thunderstorms, which may be heavy at times, to affect sections of most parishes especially during the afternoons,” the Met Service said in a news release.

“Fishers and other marine operators are urged to exercise caution as sea conditions will deteriorate in the vicinity of showers and thunderstorms,” the Met Service added.
