The Meteorological Service has discontinued the Flash Flood Watch for low-lying and flood-prone areas of St. Ann, St. Mary, Portland, St. Thomas, Kingston, St. Andrew and St. Catherine with immediate effect.

The pre-frontal Trough and Cold Front that have been influencing weather conditions across Jamaica have drifted to the east, away from the island. Satellite imagery and rainfall data indicate that conditions have improved significantly throughout today; hence the potential for flooding no longer exists.

A Trough however, is expected to move across Jamaica on Thursday and bring a significant increase in rainfall, which could continue into Friday. More information on this Trough will follow in subsequent News Releases and Forecasts.
