This weekend: Cold front will start to bring instability and good weather

A cold front extending over Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas Islands moving eastward, accompanied by its frontal trough that moves and interacts with the diurnal cycle and the local orography of the northwest, north, Cibao Valley, border line and Central Cordillera, will gradually begin to produce downpours with thunderstorms and isolated wind gusts. In the southeast and southwest regions, conditions will be more stable with scattered clouds and sunshine and little chance of precipitation.

For tomorrow, Sunday, we will have the effects of the cold front over the Dominican Republic and the trough will move towards Puerto Rico, in such sense, we will have the cloudiness generating downpours that can be moderate to heavy at times, thunderstorms and wind gusts, which will be more frequent in the northwest, Northern mountain system, Cibao valley, Central mountain range and points of the northeast.

Temperatures will be slightly hot during the afternoon in urban areas, due to the east/southeast wind, while at night they will become cool and pleasant in the mountainous areas and interior valleys, where fog and possible frost generation in high points are expected, due to the time of the year.

Due to the occurrence of significant rainfall generated by this frontal system, ONAMET is issuing an early weather alert for possible flash flooding of rivers, streams and creeks, as well as the occurrence of landslides and urban flooding in the provinces shown below.
