Weather Report N°2

Cold Surge # 14 is located in the Gulf of Mexico and will begin its influence in the country this Sunday

January 19th 2019
7.00 p.m.

Diagnosis: The cold thrust # 14 is located in the Gulf of Mexico and continues advancing towards the Caribbean Sea, entering the Caribbean Sea during the early hours of Sunday.

Forecast: The most recent analyzes maintain the forecasts for this Sunday; the wind will gradually increase over the country, as the push moves towards the south of Central America. Strong gusts of wind are expected during the Sunday night and early Monday morning exceeding 100 km / h in the mountainous sectors of the Cordillera de Guanacaste and Tilarán; in addition, they exceed 90km / h in the Central Volcanic Mountain Range. While, in low areas of Guanacaste, the peninsula and Gulf of Nicoya, the North Zone, lower parts of the Central Valley, Talamanca sector and the North Caribbean are expected to record gusts between 60-80 km / h.

There will be rains of variable intensity and scattered in the regions of the North Zone and the Caribbean from Sunday night and at least on Tuesday. Maximum accumulated amounts are estimated between 50-70 mm in periods of 24 hours.

A decrease of the temperatures in the central and northern sector of our territory is foreseen for the days Sunday and Monday, diminishing the diurnal temperatures (with respect to which they have appeared this week) in average of 2 ° C in the Central Valley, Guanacaste , North Zone and North Caribbean. In this way, it is anticipated that on both days the maximum temperature in the capital will not exceed 19 ° -20 ° C, lower values ??for areas such as Cartago and upper parts of Heredia.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

• Extreme PRECAUTIONS FOR HEAVY WINDS AND THEIR POSSIBLE AFFECTION IN CEILINGS, ELECTRICAL WIRING, HEADS, TREES; as well as in the mountainous parts of the country (national parks, volcanoes).
• Extend also the CAUTION FOR VESSELS BY SEAWELLING AND VERY STRONG SURFING IN THE NORTHERN PACIFIC, NICOYA GULF, CENTRAL PACIFIC AND THE CARIBBEAN SEA, as well as aerial navigation by turbulence on the mountainous sectors.
• AVOID BREEDS OF ALL TYPES since they can get out of control.
