IMN-120319-Condiciones ventosas a lo largo del día



Meteorological Warning

Windy conditions throughout the day

march 12, 2019.
9:20 am

Diagnosis: Atmospheric pressure continues high over the Caribbean Sea and consequently the wind over the country remains accelerated. From midnight to 9:00 am in the high areas of Guanacaste, gusts of up to 103 km / h have been recorded, while in the lower areas they have been up to 70 km / h. In that same period for the Central Valley the most significant gusts were in the range of 50 to 70 km / h. On the other hand, during the first hours of the day there were some weak drizzles in the Caribbean slope.

Forecast: Today, conditions similar to those presented yesterday are anticipated, which implies a windy day especially for the Guanacaste area where maximum gusts are expected in the range of 80-110 km / h in mountainous areas and 60-80 km / h in the lower parts. For the Central Valley moderate wind is expected with occasional gusts between 40 and 70 km / h.

As for the rains, the probability of occurrence is very low in most of the country, only possible drizzle is expected in the mountain ranges.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

  •     Extreme precautions for intense winds and their possible impact on roofs, electrical wiring, signs, trees; as well as in the mountainous parts of the country (national parks, volcanoes).
  •     Avoid burning of all kinds as they can get out of control.
  •     Also, take precautions for the boats by sharp sea and strong waves in the North Pacific and the Gulf of Nicoya, as well as the aerial navigation by turbulence on the mountainous sectors.
  •     Extreme caution -at the aeronautical level- due to strong turbulence over the mountainous sectors in Guanacaste and the Central Valley
