Heavy and intense rains in the eastern region

The Institute of Meteorology warned about the persistence of heavy rains in the eastern region, in a Special Notice on the state of the weather in a large part of the archipelago.

Regardless of the future development of the area of low pressure in the Caribbean Sea, the rains over the eastern region of Cuba will continue today, which will be heavy in some localities, and will become intense, especially in the afternoon.

Between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. yesterday, an accumulated rainfall of 51 millimeters was reported at the Cabo Cruz weather station in Granma, associated with the trough and a humid flow over the eastern half of the country, coming from the area of low pressure in the Caribbean Sea.

This area of low pressure has shown to be better organized, but it still does not have a well-defined center of circulation. As it moves to the north northeast, it will be in an environment that is not very favorable for its development; however, it could become a Tropical Depression in the next 24 hours.

Given the intensity of precipitation forecast, and the hydrological situation associated with recent rains in the eastern region, it is important to pay attention and be alert to this weather situation.

A new Special Advisory will be issued if necessary, or if a Tropical Depression forms, the information will be contained in the Tropical Cyclone Advisories.
