With some parishes already experiencing isolated showers since Wednesday night, Jamaicans should brace for more wet weather going into the weekend.
Here’s a look at the weather forecast as of 5am Thursday, December 1, 2022, according to the Meteorological Service.
There is a weak trough moving across Jamaica, and a low-level jet stream is across the central Caribbean.
The trough is expected to be replaced by a building high-pressure ridge on Friday. The ridge and jet stream — which is a narrow band of fast-flowing winds in the lower level of the atmosphere –are expected to linger throughout the weekend.
“Expect windy conditions, especially across northern parishes, due to the presence of the low-level jet stream throughout this period,” the Met Service said in its forecast.
Thursday morning:... Showers and isolated thunderstorms across north-central and eastern parishes, partly cloudy elsewhere. Windy.
Thursday afternoon:… Partly cloudy with isolated showers across hilly areas. Windy.
Thursday night:… Showers possible across north-eastern parishes.
Maximum temperature expected for Kingston, Thursday:..32 degrees Celsius
Maximum temperature expected for Montego Bay, Thursday:..32 degrees Celsius
3-day forecast (starting Friday):
Friday /Saturday / Sunday: Morning to early afternoon showers with isolated thunderstorms mainly across central and eastern parishes, partly cloudy elsewhere. Windy. Night-time showers mainly across north-central and eastern parishes.
