Rainy conditions in the Pacific and North Zone during this Monday
July 8, 2019
Diagnosis: The passage of a tropical wave and the proximity of the Intertropical Convergence Zone have been causing rainy conditions in most of the country since yesterday evening. In the last hours the amounts of rain have oscillated between 50-65 mm in the mountainous Caribbean, North Zone and Guanacaste, although the maximum amounts of rain were of 73 mm in periods of 3 hours in Upala.
Forecast: During the morning there will be intermittent rainy conditions in Guanacaste, mountains of the North Zone, Central and South Pacific. In Guanacaste there will be intermittent rains with amounts between 15-30 mm during the morning. The rest of the Pacific and Central Valley will be between partial and total cloudiness.
For the afternoon period there will be rainy conditions throughout the Pacific slope, Central Valley and all the mountainous regions of the country, particularly the North Zone and the Central Mountain Range. Rainfall amounts between 15-45 mm are expected, especially in the Central and South Pacific; in the Central Valley rainfall amounts between 5-20 mm are expected during the afternoon and evening.
In the Caribbean there will be no significant rainy conditions during this day, although isolated rains could be had.
Due to the above, the IMN recommends:
Caution in areas with vulnerability to flooding due to sewer saturation, this in view of the increase in flow in rivers and streams, and in places with a high propensity for landslides in general, mainly in the Pacific and North Zone.
Shelter in a safe place in case of listening to thunderstorm or perceive strong gusts of wind near storm clouds, as well as caution for possible fall of tree branches, power lines among others.
