...*** FLASH FLOOD WATCH ***..
• The forecast is for a continuation of the showers and isolated thunderstorms especially over eastern and south central parishes and later to remaining parishes, this afternoon into tonight. Flash flooding is therefore a possibility over low-lying and flood-prone areas of mainly eastern and south-central parishes. Based on the forecast, the flash flood watch could be extended to western parishes if necessary.
• 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 will continue to monitor the situation.
