Weather front to bring rain

According to the National Weather Service (Onamet), the humidity and instability of the weather is due to a front located in the northeast of the country that is likely to bring thunderstorms and rain to the provinces of La Altagracia (Higuey), El Seibo, Hato Mayor, San Pedro de Macorís, La Romana, Monte Plata, Sánchez Ramírez (Cotuí), Samaná, Hermanas Mirabal (Salcedo), Duarte (San Francisco de Macorís), María Trinidad Sánchez, La Vega, Monseñor Nouel (Bonao), San José de Ocoa, Santiago Rodriguez, Puerto Plata, Dajabón, Elías Piña, San Cristóbal and to Greater Santo Domingo.

The humidity is expected to increase with the approach of a new tropical wave that will lead to more thunderstorms across most of the country but especially in the northeast, southeast, south west, central mountain area and the border area. Temperatures will continue to be high.

Onamet have also warned that they are keeping an eye on a weather system around 1,200 km west south west of the Cabo Verde islands that has the potential to develop into a tropical storm over the next five days, although they say it will most likely not affect the Dominican Republic.
