National Meteorological Office announces start of summer solstice

Santo Domingo.- The National Meteorological Office reports that the summer solstice officially begins this Thursday in the northern hemisphere. This marks the hottest time of the year, characterized by the longest days and the shortest nights.

To cope with the heat, the office recommends that the public wear light, light-colored clothing, drink plenty of fluids (preferably water), and avoid sun exposure without proper protection between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Regarding the weather forecast, there will be increasing cloudiness from the morning hours with scattered rainfall and isolated thunderstorms expected along some parts of the Caribbean coastal region and the northeast. This includes areas such as Barahona, Pedernales, Peravia, Azua, Samaná, María Trinidad Sánchez, San Pedro de Macorís, La Romana, La Altagracia, San Cristóbal, and Gran Santo Domingo. These conditions are due to the combination of easterly winds and an upper-level trough.

From the afternoon until early evening, increased cloudiness with showers, thunderstorms, and gusty winds are anticipated, mainly affecting the provinces of Duarte, Sánchez Ramírez, Monte Plata, Hato Mayor, Monseñor Nouel, La Vega, Santiago, Puerto Plata, Santiago Rodríguez, Dajabón, San Cristóbal, San Pedro de Macorís, Gran Santo Domingo, and nearby areas.
