A trough is an elongated region of relatively low atmospheric pressure, often associated with fronts.This is expected to result in an increase in cloudiness and scattered showers across the island during the next 24 hours. Hence, residents in areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rocks are advised to exercise caution. Last week, heavy rainfall associated with a trough system caused several landslides and flooding across the island, as well as a 40 feet sinkhole on the Pond Case road.Moderate sea conditions are expected during the next 48 hours with swells peaking near 7.0 feet.Small craft operators and sea bathers are also advised to exercise caution.The forecast for today is generally cloudy to overcast at times with scattered showers and periods of rain.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img
