KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Meteorological Service of Jamaica has discontinued the flash flood watch for low-lying and flood-prone areas of Hanover and St James, effective immediately. 

However, the flood watch for sections of Trelawny, St Ann, St Mary, and Portland, has been extended until 5:00 am tomorrow.

The Met Service in an update this evening said a stationary front continues to produce unstable weather conditions across the island, but, current projections are for the system to gradually weaken and dissipate on Thursday.

Satellite imagery and rainfall data indicate that showers affected sections of mainly north-central and eastern parishes today.

The forecast is for periods of showers, which could be heavy at times, to continue tonight and into early Thursday.

A flash flood watch means that flash flooding is possible and residents are advised to take precautionary measures, keep informed by listening to further releases from the Meteorological Service and be ready for quick action if flooding is observed or if a warning is issued.

The Meteorological Service said it will continue to monitor the situation.
