Meteorological Warning

Tropical wave # 21 enters the country tonight

August 3, 2019.
6:40 pm

Diagnosis: Tropical wave # 21 is positioned at this time on western Panama and is approaching Costa Rica.


Forecast: Tropical wave # 21 will enter the country between the end of this Saturday and early Sunday morning so rainy conditions are expected in several parts of the country during this night period.

Particularly, in the South Pacific, isolated storm rains are expected mainly located in the sectors of Ciudad Neily, Golfo Dulce and Osa Peninsula and more dispersed in the Central Pacific with maximum accumulated amounts between 20-50 mm.

For the regions of the Caribbean, North Zone and Central Valley, isolated drizzles and possible moderate rainfall are expected in a timely manner with maximum accumulated between 1-5 mm mainly in the mountainous areas. On the other hand, isolated rains on the Nicoya peninsula with maximum accumulated amounts between 1-15 mm are possible for the North Pacific.

  • Due to the above, the IMN recommends:
  •     Caution in areas vulnerable to flooding due to sewer saturation, increased flow in rivers and streams and sectors with a high propensity for landslides.
  •     Shelter in a safe place in case of hearing thunderstorms or perceiving strong gusts of wind near storm clouds, as well as precaution for possible fall of tree branches, power lines among others.
