Rains during the morning in the Caribbean and in the afternoon in the Pacific
June 6, 2019.
Discussion: The Intertropical Convergence Zone is close to the national territory, generating cloudiness near the coastal parts of both the Pacific and the Caribbean and in turn rainfall in the province of Limón with amounts close to 50 mm in the last 6 hours.
Forecast: On the morning of this day will be maintained rainfall of varying intensity in the province of Limón and Zona Norte, with accumulated between 20-40 mm in lapses of 3-6 hours. Part of the cloud cover can extend to the Central Valley and cause drizzle mainly north and east (San José, Cartago, Heredia mountains) with amounts less than 5 mm of 3-6 hours.
During the afternoon and early evening, rains of variable intensity and thunderstorms are forecast for the Central and South Pacific regions with amounts between 25-50 mm in periods of 3-6 hours, for the North Pacific, isolated showers are expected and thunderstorm -especially in the Nicoya Peninsula-, accumulated between 20-40 mm of 3-6 hours. In the Central Valley and mountainous sectors of the Caribbean and the North Zone are expected isolated showers with possible thunderstorm with accumulated between 10-30 mm of 3-6 hours.
Due to the above, the IMN recommends:
- Caution in areas with vulnerability to flooding due to saturation of sewers, increased flow in rivers and streams and sectors with high propensity to landslide.
- Shelter in a safe place in case of listening to thunderstorm or perceive strong gusts of wind near storm clouds, as well as caution for possible fall of tree branches, power lines among others.
