Tropical wave’s downpours could spell drought relief

Santo Domingo.- The National Weather Office (Onamet) on Friday forecasts downpours starting late afternoon, from a tropical wave over the east region moving west.

It said all regions can expect scattered to moderate showers, except the southwestern provinces, while the seasonably high temperatures will continue.

Onamet said the same weather pattern will continue through Saturday morning, when the scattered showers will continue during the afternoon until early evening, especially over the Northeast, Southeast and Central Mountains.

The showers forecast could spell relief for many areas of the country parched by a stubborn drought.
