Weather Warning

Rainy day in the country this Wednesday

July 3th, 2019
10.30 a.m.

Diagnosis: After the passage of the tropical wave # 10 by Costa Rica this morning, the atmospheric instability caused by the wave generates rains of weak to moderate intensity since this morning in the Caribbean, the North Zone, and occasionally in the Central Valley .

Forecast: During this afternoon, isolated thunderstorms with thunderstorms are forecast along the Pacific coast and the west of the Central Valley, with amounts accumulated between 20-60 mm in this period. In the eastern sector of the Central Valley there will be weak rains with amounts not exceeding 5 mm. In the North Zone and the Caribbean there will be weak and scattered rains near the mountains.

Occasional wind gusts are expected between 50-60 km / h over the Guanacaste Mountain Range and the Central Volcanic Mountain Range.

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.
• Stay informed through Twitter: @IMNCR, Facebook: National Meteorological Institute and the WEB Page: www.imn.ac.cr
