Rainstorms expected

According to the National Meteorolgical Office (Onamet) thunderstorms, both moderate and severe, are expected across the whole country, especially at dusk, due to a weather front at high level and the effects of the heat during the day.

Most of the heavy rainfall is expected in the provinces of El Seibo, Hato Mayor, Monte Plata, Samaná, Sánchez Ramírez, Duarte, María Trinidad Sánchez, La Vega, Monseñor Nouel, Bahoruco, San Juan, Elías Piña, Dajabón, Santiago Rodríguez, Santiago, Valverde, Puerto Plata and Montecristi.

Onamet say that after Wednesday, 19 July 2017, the amount of humidity in the air will decrease as will the rainfall although occasional thunderstorms will continue in the mountainous areas of the country.

The institution also advises that they are watching a tropical wave associated with a low pressure system in the eastern Atlantic Ocean, some 1,280 kilometers to the east of the Lesser Antilles. It has a medium chance of development and an Air Force plan is programmed to investigate it, with the current probability of development within 48 hours at 40%.
