October 25, 2020
5.30 pm

Diagnosis: Tropical storm Zeta, which is located north of Honduras and about 350 km from Cozumel, Yucatán continues to move north. This system has favored the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone to be located over Nicaragua. This system maintains indirect influence over Costa Rica, favoring an indirect flow of west winds throughout the national territory, favoring intermittent rains in some sectors such as the Nicoya peninsula with accumulations between 70-110 mm, and the northern zone with accumulations of 50 mm.

Forecast: At night there will be intermittent rains and downpours in the North Pacific, North Zone and Central Valley, more isolated in the mountains of the Caribbean there will be rainfall. Rainfall amounts between 15-30 mm in the Central and South Pacific, amounts between 1-15 m in the Central Valley, and between 15-40 mm in the North Pacific, North Zone and mountains of the Caribbean will appear in the next 6 hours .

Warning: Special attention due to the high percentage of soil saturation in the Nicoya Peninsula and the Northern Zone. As well as the possibility of flash floods due to sewer saturation.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

Caution in areas vulnerable to flooding due to sewer saturation.
Take shelter in a safe place in case of hearing an electrical storm or perceive strong gusts of wind near the storm clouds, as well as caution against possible falling tree branches, power lines, among others.
