The National Meteorological Service (SNM) anticipated heavy rains and thunderstorms this afternoon for sectors of the interior and southwest of the island due to a humid air mass that is reaching the area.
Meteorologist Fernanda Ramos argued that, just like yesterday, these downpours could cause minor flooding in urban and poorly drained areas, so citizens should exercise caution.
"Today we are going to have dispersed activity throughout the municipalities from the east and north of the island, but late in the afternoon we will see the focus of rain in the interior and southwest quadrant of the island because a more humid air mass is coming and the wind is from the east-northeast, so we will see the focus of rain in this quadrant, "the expert explained to El Nuevo Día .
She specified that the metropolitan area could also receive downpours in the afternoon, but they would be scattered.
Ramos said that between wednesday It is and on Thursday a tropical wave could arrive on the island. However, he stressed that it is too early to determine how much rain it will leave.
"We cannot advance if (the tropical wave) will help us with the situation of the Carraízo reservoir, since we need a very significant and recurrent activity in that zone "established.
According to the Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (AAA), the Carraízo reservoir woke up today with 37.26 meters of water, which means that it is only six centimeters from entering the control level it would mean a service interruption for customers.
As for dust from the Sahara desert, the meteorologist said that the mist from this particulate is dissipating, but said that there is still a little left in the area.
“There is still something in the area of activity that we saw at the weekend, but already this rainy activity today will help the environment to clean up a lot from that suspended particulate. Until the tropical wave passes, we could not consider whether another dust event could be approaching the area, "he stated, recalling that we are in the season of presence of Saharan particulate in the Caribbean.
On the other hand, Temperatures in urban and coastal areas will remain between high 80 degrees Fahrenheit to low 90 degrees . Meanwhile, the highest areas will experience temperatures between high and low 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Regarding the maritime conditions, Ramos stated that they are calm with a wave of 3 to 5 feet in the waters of the Atlantic and 2 to 4 feet in Caribbean waters.
He stressed that bathers should exercise caution, since most of the beaches in the north of the country have a moderate risk of dangerous marine currents.
