It is forecast that from the early hours of Monday, more significant cloudiness of tropical cyclone CRACE will enter, which will begin to produce quantitative rains, thunderstorms, and wind with storm forces over the regions, east, northeast southeast and will extend to other areas in the day and night covering much of the national territory.
