Following the passage of Tropical Storm Zeta,Head of the Met Service Rohan Brown explained that there was a weak high pressure system which reduced rainfall and bring more stable conditions to the Jamaica area.
However, the weak high pressure ridge dissipated quickly making way for another trough system which is currently contributing to the cloudy and wet conditions.
Lingering showers across sections of most parishes and cloudy are expected to persist through the end of the week.
