More wet weather in the forecast for Jamaica on Wednesday

Don’t put away your umbrellas just yet, the Meteorological Service of Jamaica is forecasting more wet weather for Jamaica come Wednesday (October 28).

Head of the Met Service Rohan Brown explained that there is a weak high pressure system which is projected to move across the island which will reduced rainfall and bring more stable conditions to the Jamaica area.

However, this weak high pressure ridge is expected to dissipate, making way for another trough system which could result in more rains for the island.

Flash flood warnings were discontinued for Jamaica on Monday as the trough associated with Tropical Storm Zeta moved further west and away from Jamaica.

Like Jamaica, Zeta lashed Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula overnight with 80 mph winds and heavy rains.

TS Zeta is expected to strengthen into a Category 1 hurricane before making landfall some time Wednesday afternoon.

According to the latest information from the National Hurricane Centre,TS Zeta was located just offshore of the northern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula near latitude 21.6 North, longitude 89.5 West.
