Weather Warning

Heavy rainy activity persists in the Pacific regions

June 30, 2019
06.00 pm

Diagnosis: This afternoon there have been heavy showers in the Pacific regions, leaving between 20 and 60 mm accumulated in the last 4 hours.

Forecast: It is expected that this strong rainy activity persists at least in the next two hours in the coastal sector of the Central Pacific and Guanacaste mainly, with the possibility of extending to areas near these. Predicted accumulations range between 10-30 mm in lapses of 1 to 3 hours in the sectors mentioned.

In the rest of the country the precipitations will be isolated, located mainly in the mountains and with accumulated less than 20 mm in the next 3 hours.

As the night progresses (after 9-10 pm) the chances of heavy rain will decrease throughout the national territory.

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.
