(Nov 6, 2007) - Rain Continues
(Nov 6, 2007) - The weather in Jamaica today will continue to be rainy. A stationary front that stretches from Nicaragua to the Canadian Maritimes remains in place over Jamaica. In addition, a series of tropical waves are coming in from the east that are impacting the front right over the island. It's a recipe for much rain.

(Sep 3, 2007) - Hurricane Felix to the South on Election Day
(Sep 3, 2007) - Hurricane Felix will pass to the south of the island on September 3, the new Jamaican election day, delayed from Aug 27 because of Hurricane Dean. There may be a change in government as a result of the election, and this may be for the best.

(Aug 17, 2007) - Hurricane Dean Inbound
(Aug 17, 2007) - Hurricane Dean is inbound and expected to remain at hurricane levels when it reaches the area of Jamaica this Sunday. With any luck, it will pass to the south of the island, but things could well be nasty nonetheless. Residents of JA are advised to check drains, pound more nails into the roof, stock up on basic supplies, and generally batten down the hatches.

(June 12, 2007) - Rainy-season continues
(June 12, 2007) - The weather in Jamaica on Tuesday will continue to be inclement. A tropical wave is moving through from the east (seen in the chart below), and rain can be expected periodically throughout the day in most parishes. This could be heavy at times and cause local flooding. These conditions will continue for another day or two, and will then be followed by a respite of several days until the next tropical wave drifts through. Please note that these waves are what seed tropical storms and hurricanes. They bear close watching.

(June 1, 2007) - Hurricane season underway
(June 1, 2007) - Please be advised that the hurricane season started on Jun 1. The time to clear drains, natural or otherwise, is now, not when a category five storm is approaching. In particular, we ask those who live in districts with caves and sinkholes to please pick up all the plastic trash on the riverbanks upstream, put it in a big pile, and burn it in a very hot fire. If you don't, it will contribute to the accumulation of trash already in the caves, block the drainage even more, and definitely increase the chance of you being flooded out in the future.
