More heavy, thundery showers dumped further rain on the Cayman Islands Thursday and experts predicted more of the same for Friday before a decrease in cloudiness and shower activity with the winds shifting to the east to southeast by Friday evening.

Thursday evening’s forecast called for cloudy skies with a 40% chance of showers and some thunder. Temperatures will fall to the upper 70’s. Winds will be south to south-easterly 10 to 15 knots with higher gusts. Seas will be moderate to rough with wave heights of 4 to 6 feet especially along the south coasts. Small crafts should continue to exercise caution over open waters.
