*** ...IOTA WEAKENS TO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION OVER EL SALVADOR... ...THREAT OF CATASTROPHIC FLASH FLOODING AND MUDSLIDES WILL CONTINUE ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AMERICA...***
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 55 km/h with higher gusts. Additional weakening is forecast, and Iota is expected to degenerate into a post-tropical remnant low pressure system later today.
Tropical Storm Iota is not a threat to Jamaica.
The Meteorological Service will continue to monitor the progress of this system.
