For Greater Caracas, fragmented clouds are expected during a large part of the period; Scattered rain or drizzle, especially over the mountains and coasts to the east of the unit.
Meteorological conditions cause rain
Inameh reports that these meteorological conditions originate from the line of atmospheric instability in the lower layers of the troposphere that occurs in the center of the country. This line, when it interacts with the Intertropical Convergence Zone, causes abundant cloud cover with rain or showers.
These meteorological conditions are reinforced by different wind patterns at altitude, which favor the rise of warm and moist air masses from the surface.
Similarly, in his report, Inamah reported a tropical wave leaving the coast of Africa at 20° west.
