Weather warning

Rainy activity in the Caribbean and North Zone during this morning

August 6, 2019.
06.45 a.m.

Discussion: The Intertropical Convergence Zone is active over the country, together with instability in the high atmosphere favor the presence of cloudiness and rainy activity in the Caribbean and North Zone and to a lesser extent reach the Central Valley, with accumulated between 50-78 mm in the last 6 hours, the highest in the North Caribbean.

Forecast: In the morning there will be showers of variable intensity and showers with thunderstorms in the North Caribbean with amounts between 25-50 mm; in the South Caribbean and North Zone, rain and isolated downpours are expected with accumulated between 10-30 mm and possible higher amounts in a timely manner. The cloud cover will occasionally reach the Central Valley causing isolated showers especially in the eastern sector with amounts less than 10 mm.

For this afternoon, showers and thunderstorms are expected for the Central and South Pacific with amounts between 10-40 mm. Isolated showers are possible in the Nicoya Peninsula, mountainous sectors and west of the Central Valley with accumulations smaller than 20 mm. On the other hand in the Caribbean and the North Zone, isolated rains are estimated mainly in the mountains with amounts between 10-30 mm.

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. Special attention to the Pacific slope.
  • 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.
