KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Meteorological Service has issued a flash flood watch for low-lying and flood prone areas of northern parishes.
The flash flood watch is effective until 7:00 am on Sunday.
The Meteorological Service said today that projections are for showers and thunderstorms, which could be heavy at times, to affect Jamaica today into Sunday morning. Temperatures are also expected to be noticeably below normal across the island.
A flash flood watch means that flash flooding is possible and residents are advised to take precautionary measures, keep informed by listening to further releases from the Meteorological Service and be ready for quick action if flooding is observed or if a warning is issued.
The Meteorological Service said it will continue to monitor the situation.
