KINGSTON, Jamaica - The area of low pressure, with an associated Tropical Wave, is currently southeast of Jamaica and is generating unstable weather conditions over the island and its territorial waters, the Meteorological Service says.
The system which is expected to be southwest of Jamaica on Tuesday, and move over the island on Wednesday, currently has a high chance of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.
The forecast is for occasionally heavy showers and thunderstorms to impact the island particularly during the afternoon on Monday.
On Tuesday through Thursday, expect an increase in rainfall with possible stormy weather conditions developing by Wednesday, the Met service advises.
Fishers and other marine interests, especially those on the cays and banks, are strongly advised to exercise caution as the system remains over the area.
