Weather Warning

Rains for this afternoon in the Central and South Pacific

July 22th, 2019
10.30 p.m.

Diagnosis: due to the proximity of the Intertropical Convergence Zone, coupled with a disturbance in the atmosphere, a rainy afternoon and night is expected in much of the Pacific coast this day.

Forecast: During the first hours of the afternoon there will be showers with thunderstorms in the South Zone. As the afternoon progresses, the rains extend along the Central Pacific coast and reach the Nicoya Peninsula at the start of the night. It is estimated rain amounts between 15-45 mm and maximums of 50-60 mm in the whole coast.

In the Central Valley, there will be scattered rains in the east of the region; while in the west it is possible the presence of showers of short duration.

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.
