Met Services gives positive outlook for rainfall in coming months

Weather experts are expecting that Jamaica will soon be seeing an increase in rainfall. 
Evan Thompson, Principal Director of the Meteorological Service of Jamaica, revealed on Tuesday that the projection is for above normal rainfall over the next three months.
He said, having come out of a drought period, "we are now in the secondary rainy months of the year, in terms of May producing more rainfall, normally; and so that is expected to continue, and then as we go through June, July..."
Additionally, he revealed that there are "some other climatic patterns that would suggest that rainfall is going to increase as we go through the summer months of the year."
Accordingly, he said, "we are not expecting that we will have a continuation of drought conditions for very much longer... and we could even be moving to experiencing rainfall that is above our norm."
He told Radio Jamaica News that there is a higher probability of above normal rainfall for central parishes than for the eastern and western ends of the island.
