The Jamaica Gleaner has a story today about Tropical Storm Alma (a Pacific storm) possible bringing a little bit of weather to Jamaica:

With just two days to go before the official start of the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season, a tropical storm affecting sections of the central Caribbean is expected to bring increased showers across Jamaica.

The Meteorological Service is, however, advising that Tropical Storm Alma does not present any immediate threat to the island, but the system will continue to produce instability over the central and western Caribbean over the next two days.

As a result, the island is expected to see an increase in cloudiness with periods of showers and thunderstorms, which might be heavy at times.

These conditions are likely to affect most parishes throughout today and Saturday, especially during the afternoons and late evenings.
