Weather Warning

Rains in the country because of the Intertropical Convergence Zone

14 de julio
10.00 am

Diagnosis: The Intertropical Convergence Zone is located near Costa Rica,
causing atmospheric instability over Costa Rica. Due to this, a rainy day is expected in the national territory.

Forecast: During the rest of the morning, there will be rain between weak and moderate intensity
in the mountains of the North Zone, with occasional incursions into the Central Valley.

In the afternoon, showers with thunderstorms are expected throughout the Central Pacific, South Pacific and Nicoya Peninsula regions,
during the afternoon and early evening; amounts are estimated for these regions between 20-30mm and maximum between 40-50mm.

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 an electrical storm or perceive strong gusts of wind near the storm clouds, as well as caution for possible fall of tree branches, power lines among others.
