Bajareque Season

bajareque

Once again we have the dry season winds that are formed when cold fronts in North America extend down into the Carribean. Moist Atlantic air is drawn over the continental divide due to the pressure differences between the Atlantic and Pacific. These white clouds come streaming over the divide and vanish into thin air as they evaporate right before your eyes. These streaming clouds have a name here, Bajareque. When the clouds carry enough moisture we get horizontal rains that can last a couple of days, much needed moisture during this parched season.
