ONAMET: Cloudy with weak rains due to frontal system incidence

ONAMET, the National Meteorological Office reports that a frontal system is located in the most eastern end of the country, starting to leave our forecast area, reducing the chances of significant rainfall on the Dominican territory. However, lagging cloudiness of the system will be causing some cloudiness today with light rains towards the northeast, southeast, Cordillera Central, and Greater Santo Domingo regions. The rest of the country will experience pleasant weather conditions.

By tomorrow (Monday), the frontal system will have left our forecast area entirely, keeping significant rains scarce over most of the national geography. However, the east/northeast wind will be transporting cloud fields from the Atlantic Ocean to the Dominican territory, causing some light rains towards towns in the northeast, southeast, and the Cordillera Central regions.

Temperatures will remain slightly hot during the day, especially in urban areas.

National District: Partly cloudy to cloudy with some occasional light rain.

Santo Domingo West:      Partly cloudy at times with light rains at times.

Santo Domingo North:      Partly cloudy to cloudy with light rains.

Greater Santo Domingo: Maximum temperature between 30ºC and 32ºC (86-90°F) and minimum between 21ºC and 23ºC (70-73°F). 

Today: Partly cloudy to cloudy with light rains towards the northeast, southeast, Cordillera Central, and Greater Santo Domingo regions.
