December through March
represents the dry season for Jamaica. The rainfall outlook for January to March 2017 is
reflecting near normal or what would be considered climatology with warmer
There was significant
deficit in rainfall for Hanover and Westmoreland for October and November and likely for
December as well due to the lack of significant rainfall activity during the month.
Shortfall in activity was also seen in some southern parishes.
Western and southern
parishes are therefore likely to experience some level of drying for January through
March due to the forecast showing reduced rainfall activity which is likely to exacerbate
the existing deficit.
