Forecast: For the remainder of this afternoon, moderate rains and isolated but strong downpours will continue, accompanied by a thunderstorm in the Pacific and Central Valley regions, estimates are between 30-60 mm, possibly higher accumulated in a localized manner. On the other hand, in the North Zone and mountains of the Caribbean rains and storms are estimated, accumulated between 20-40 mm.
