KINGSTON, Jamaica — An increase in rainfall is expected across the island this weekend, the Meteorological (Met) Service of Jamaica is reporting.

The rainfall is due to a trough across the central Caribbean that has been generating unstable weather conditions, the Met Service said.

Atmospheric conditions are expected to become more unstable beginning tomorrow afternoon.

The forecast is for periods of showers and thunderstorms, which could be heavy at times, to continue affecting sections of most parishes on Friday through National Heroes Day on Monday, especially during the afternoons.
