Strong winds this sunday

december 8, 2019.
8:00 am

Diagnosis: High levels of atmospheric pressure over the Caribbean Sea generate an acceleration of the wind over the Central American region. So far this morning there have been maximum gusts between 40-58 km / h in the cities of the GAM and lower parts of Guanacaste and between 60-81 km / h in the mountainous areas of the country.

Forecast: Windy conditions are planned for this Sunday for the Central Valley, Guanacaste and the mountains of the national territory. Occasional gusts are expected in the range of 40-60 km / h for the cities and lower parts of the GAM and Guanacaste and between 70-100 km / h for the mountainous areas.

Regarding rainfall, occasional rains are expected for the Caribbean and North Zone regions throughout the day, mainly in the vicinity of mountainous areas and most likely towards night, the maximum accumulated amounts are forecast between 10-40 mm In addition, for the South Pacific, scattered rains are expected during the afternoon and early evening with amounts estimated between 5-20 mm. For the rest of the country no significant rainy activity is expected.

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).
  •     Avoid burning of all kinds as they can get out of control.
