KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Meteorological (Met) Service has said the island is expected to experience cloudy conditions with showers and thunderstorms today and tomorrow as remnants of what is now a tropical wave associated with former storm Harvey passes to the south of Jamaica.

The Met Service said at 11:00 pm yesterday, the tropical wave associated with Harvey's remnants was moving quickly westward, and is expected to move across the central Caribbean Sea on Sunday and across the western Caribbean Sea toward Central America on Monday. Maximum sustained winds are near 55 km/h with higher gusts.

Marine interests, especially small craft operators are advised to exercise extreme caution as the remnants of Harvey traverse the waters south of Jamaica.
