Persons living in low-lying, flood-prone areas have been advised to exercise caution and remain on the alert in the wake of persistent heavy rainfall which the island has been experiencing throughout the day.
This advice has come from the Director of the Meteorological Office, Hampden Lovell, who said that a number of districts had experienced saturated conditions.
He explained that "a broad area of unsettled conditions, associated with a trough system, has been generating cloudy to overcast skies, periods of light to moderate rain and some occasional moderate to heavy showers across the island during the day.
"Analysis suggests that these conditions will continue to affect the island during the night. Moisture levels are expected to remain reasonably high into the weekend, and as a result some sporadic showers are likely to persist during this time."
