Windy conditions this Sunday - Tropical wave # 48 transits over the country
November 10, 2019
Discussion: The 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 the mountain ranges with maximum gusts so far between 50-75 km/h in these sectors. In addition to this, the tropical wave # 48 enters the national territory favoring rain events in the North and Caribbean with amounts less than 10 mm in the last eight hours.
Forecast: The strong windy pattern will continue during this Sunday. This situation will cause persistent gusts in the North Pacific, Central Valley and mountain ranges with estimated speeds between 50-90 km/h.
In relation to rainfall, tropical wave # 48 will generate isolated rainfall; During the morning and night in the Caribbean and North Zone, while in the afternoon they will concentrate on the mountainous sectors, 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 with accumulated less than 5 mm. In the Central and South Pacific, isolated showers with thunderstorms are expected in the afternoon and early evening, amounts between 10-40 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.
