Come this afternoon, widely scattered showers and possible thunderstorms are expected mainly across sections of central and south western parishes, while lingering showers are expected across northern sections of the island tonight.

A weak high pressure ridge is then expected to briefly influence weather conditions on Wednesday before another frontal system enters the western Caribbean come Thursday.
