Rains of variable intensity in the Caribbean and the North Zone
July 19, 2019
Discussion: The constant entry of moisture from the Caribbean Sea into the national territory favored by the accelerated trade winds, generate the formation and entry of cloud nuclei towards the province of Limón and the North Zone, causing in turn rains of variable intensity and electrical storm isolated.
Forecast: In the course of the morning, precipitation of different intensity is expected and isolated thunderstorm in the Caribbean and North Zone regions, estimated cumulative between 20-40 mm with possible higher quantities locally. Cloud incursions are possible towards the Central Valley and north of Guanacaste generating drizzles, mainly in the mountains, amounts less than 5 mm.
In the afternoon, the rains tend to decrease gradually in the Caribbean and the North Zone; however, they can occur in isolation on the mountainous sectors, amounts between 5-15 mm. In this period, in the Central and South Pacific, isolated showers and thunderstorms are forecast, especially in mountainous areas, accumulated 20-40 mm. While in the Central and North Pacific Valleys the possibility of rain is low, to manifest itself will be in the form of weak rain and drizzle in the mountains.
Occasional rains are possible in the Caribbean and the North Zone during the night.
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.
