Tropical Storm Watch Issued for Jamaica

A tropical storm watch has now been issued for Jamaica as a weakening Tropical Storm Chantal moves quickly westward.

The Meteorological service says the system could pass close to Jamaica’s eastern coastline.

A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions pose a possible threat to Jamaica within 36 hours.

Jamaica could begin feeling effects of Tropical Storm Chantal as early as tonight as the system passes in the vicinity of the island either as a tropical wave or tropical cyclone.
