Discussion: Atmospheric pressure values over the Caribbean Sea remain high, generating accelerated trade winds in the country, accentuating towards the Central Valley, the North Pacific and mountain ranges with maximum gusts so far between 50-90 km/h, in Cerro Chirripó speeds reach 106 km/h. In addition, there is an increase in humidity and instability in regions of the Caribbean and the Northern Zone causing rain events in the North Zone and the Caribbean with amounts between 10-30 mm in the last 8 hours.
Forecast: The strong windy pattern will continue during this Wednesday. This situation will cause persistent gusts in the North Pacific, Central Valley with estimated speeds between 50-90 km/h, the most intense gusts are expected in the mountain ranges and may exceed 100 km/h.
With respect to rainfall; Rains of variable intensity in the Caribbean and the North Zone are expected for most of the day, with greater emphasis in the morning and night, amounts between 10-30 mm and maximums of 50 mm. Weak showers and drizzles are possible in the mountains of the Central Valley and the North Pacific, which occasionally can enter the lower parts of these regions, accumulated less than 5 mm. In the Central and South Pacific there is the possibility of isolated rains in the mountains during the afternoon period, amounts less than 10 mm.
Due to the above, the IMN recommends:
- Extreme precautions due to strong winds and their possible impact on roofs, electrical wiring, signs, trees; as well as in the mountainous parts of the country (national parks, volcanoes).
- Caution in areas vulnerable to flooding due to sewer saturation, increased flow in rivers and streams, and in areas prone to landslides.
- Caution for boats by choppy sea and very strong waves in the North Pacific, Gulf of Nicoya, Central Pacific and the Caribbean Sea, as well as air navigation due to turbulence over the mountainous sectors.
- Avoid burning of all kinds as they can get out of control.
