During the morning hours we will observe a meteorological panorama of scarce rains over most of the national territory, however, starting in the afternoon there will be some cloudy developments that will be accompanied by local downpours with thunderstorms, especially over the northeastern and southeastern regions, the Central Mountain Range and the border area, this is due to the incidence of a weak trough in the lower levels of the troposphere and the effects of the east/southeast wind.
