J’cans told to brace for more rain, another tropical wave could develop

Jamaicans are being told to brace for more rain come the end of the week.

According to the local Met Service, while there will be improvements in the weather conditions come Tuesday (November 10), more rain is in the forecast.

The Met Service says a tropical wave could develop and bring more inclement weather to the Central Caribbean region by the end of the week.

According to the latest information from the Miami-based National Hurricane Centre, a low pressure system has formed and is located several hundred miles southwest of
the Azores.

Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with the system are beginning to show some signs of organization.

The NHC said this low-pressure system could potentially develop over the next several days, and a tropical or subtropical storm could form.

As for Tropical Storm Eta the storm continues on track to Florida and was in the NHC’s latest update said to be located near latitude 23.9 degrees north, longitude 79.5 degrees west or about 225 kilometres south-southeast of Miami, Florida.

Eta is expected to move toward the northwest near 22 km/h.

This general motion is expected to continue this evening, followed by a turn toward the west by Monday.
