Strong gusts of wind will remain during this Friday
January 18th 2019
Forecast: The windy conditions are expected to continue during this Friday, with maximum gusts between 60-85 km/h in the mountain ranges of Guanacaste, Tilarán, Central Volcanic Range and Talamanca sector; while, in the lower parts of the Central Valley, the Gulf of Nicoya and the Nicoya peninsula are estimated gusts between 40-70 km/h.
Few precipitations are anticipated due to the presence of a mass of dry air over the national territory and the Caribbean Sea. Most of the Pacific and Central Valley will be sunny. For the Caribbean slope, variable cloudiness is expected without precipitation.
This Sunday is expected a very strong increase in the trade winds and also rainy conditions in the Caribbean due to the influence of cold surge #14 which will be entering the Caribbean Sea from Sunday afternoon. This push is estimated to be generating gusts above 100 km/h in the mountainous sectors.
Due to the above, the IMN recommends:
- Extreme precautions for strong winds and possible impact on roofs, electrical wiring, signs, trees; as well as in the mountainous parts of the country (national parks, volcanoes).
- Caution for boats by sharp sea and very strong waves in the North Pacific, Gulf of Nicoya, Central Pacific and the Caribbean Sea.
- Caution in air navigation due to turbulence over mountainous sectors.
- Avoid burning of all kinds since they can get out of control.
