The Meteorological Service says the heavy rainfall this afternoon in parts of the Corporate Area today, should not continue into tomorrow.

Duty Forecaster at the Meteorological Service, Javed Hudson, told Nationwide News rains are due to a pressure ridge which remains across sections of the island. He says this is causing excess moisture in the atmosphere.
