Have your raincoats, umbrellas and Wellington boots at the ready because, for the remainder of tonight and tomorrow, showers will drench the country. That’s thanks to a tropical wave crossing the country tonight. Chief Meteorologist, Ronald Gordon explained this evening that conditions should improve by tomorrow.
However, those showers can mean bad news for those communities near some important waterways in the south. Principal Hydrologist, Tennielle (te-neel) Hendy explained why the Sibun, Manatee, Mullins, Sittee, Moho, Deep and Temash Rivers are under flash flood watch.
Included in the flash flood watch are the Swasey, Bladen, and the North Stann Creek Rivers and the Rio Grande, which are watersheds off the Maya Mountains’ eastern slopes.
