Adverse Weather Alert Extended To Thursday, 4pm, Says The Met Office.

An Adverse Weather Alert yellow level, now in effect, has been extended to Thursday at 4pm.

In an update Wednesday afternoon, the Meteorological Service said cloudy but mostly settled conditions are expected to continue as the afternoon progresses.

However, there is a medium to high chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms of varying intensities, to develop after midnight into tomorrow.

Activity is forecast to peak during the morning period but isolated impactful rainfall can occur during the afternoon.

Gusty winds in excess of 45km/hr are possible in heavier showers/thunderstorms.

Additional rainfall will further exacerbate areas already inundated especially along smaller rivers.

Smaller water courses can become overwhelmed and spill over onto surrounding environs.

Localized flooding and ponding can cause temporary traffic disruptions and landslips are possible in areas so prone.

Gusty winds can lead to loose/unsecured items being displaced as well as further agitation of sea conditions.

Members of the public are asked not to wade or drive through flood waters.

Residents along river banks should be on the alert and take the necessary precautions to preserve life and property.

Monitor weather conditions and official updates. Follow the instructions of government officials. More information:
