Santo Domingo, DR.


The National Meteorological Office (ONAMET), predicted that the precipitations that have been registered in recent days as a result of a trough that has impacted the country, will decrease today due to the inclusion of dust from the Sahara at the national level.

However, the high-level trough will continue to be located in the western portion, stimulating, together with the local effects and the trade wind, a medium cloudy to mostly cloudy skies in specific sectors of the Northeast, Southeast, and Central Cordillera regions in the afternoon.
