Weather Warning

Intertropical Convergence Zone will cause precipitation in the Central and South Pacific

July 23th, 2019
10.30 a.m.

Diagnosis: The proximity of the Intertropical Convergence Zone is generating atmospheric instability in both maritime sectors of the country; therefore, rains of moderate to strong intensity of the Pacific coast are expected.

Forecast: From early afternoon until late at night there will be showers with thunderstorms in front of the Pacific coast of the country - from the Nicoya Peninsula to the South Zone -, with estimated amounts between 30-40mm and maximum 50-60mm.

In the Central Valley, downpours will be concentrated in the Western Zone, with the possibility of a thunderstorm and estimated amounts of 15-30mm.

In the Caribbean and North Zone regions, showers with thunderstorms are forecast in the early hours of the night, with amounts between 20-40mm.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

• Caution in areas vulnerable to flooding due to sewer saturation, increased flow in rivers and streams, and sectors with high propensity for landslides.
• Shelter in a safe place in case of hearing thunderstorms or perceiving strong gusts of wind near storm clouds, as well as precaution for possible fall of tree branches, power lines among others.
• Stay informed through Twitter: @IMNCR, Facebook: National Meteorological Institute and the Website: www.imn.ac.cr
