As was forecast, early Thursday heavy rains and dark clouds took over the usually sunny skies of Aruba. This caused some streets and some areas to fill with water, however, damage was minimal.
According to Aruba Weather Watch, during the next couple of days, atmospheric conditions will become more favorable for significant clouds to spread over our region, due to an active tropical wave approaching our area. These clouds are expected to generate moderate to heavy thundershowers over our island. Gusty winds are expected during heavier showers and also localized flooding due to heavy showers. For this reason, a code yellow is in effect for severe thunderstorms and rough seas.
