Weather Warning

Windy conditions on this Sunday

March 29, 2020
09.45 a.m.

Discussion: The atmospheric pressure values are high in the Caribbean Sea, a situation that is generating strong trade winds in the country, particularly in the Central Valley and North Pacific. Gusts of 79 km/h have been recorded in La Cruz de Guanacaste, while in the rest of the North Pacific they are around 50-65 km/h; meanwhile in the Central Valley the maximum speeds range between 40-55 km/h. This morning variable cloudiness manifests in the North Zone and Caribbean with isolated rains mainly in the mountains, the accumulated ones are less than 12 mm.

Forecast: The windy pattern will remain strong during this Sunday in the North Pacific, Central Valley and mountain ranges. Maximum gusts are estimated between 40-65 km/h in the lower parts of these regions, for northern Guanacaste and the mountainous sectors between 75-85 km/h.
In the afternoon, cloud cover tends to decrease in a large part of the North Zone and the Caribbean; however, scattered clouds will remain in the mountains which can generate light rains with amounts less than 10 mm. In the Central and South Pacific there is the possibility of short rains and downpours, especially in the mountainous sectors and their surroundings with amounts between 5-20 mm. In the rest of the country no significant rains are expected.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

  • Take precautions for strong winds and their possible damage to roofs, electrical wiring, signs, trees; as well as in the mountainous parts of the country (national parks, volcanoes).
  • Caution for boats by rough sea and very strong waves in the North Pacific, Gulf of Nicoya, 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.
