Afternoon of rains on the Pacific Slope
August 7, 2019.
Diagnosis: The Intertropical Convergence Zone continues very active on the country, increasing atmospheric instability in the national territory. Due to this, the cloudy sky in the country has predominated during the morning with scattered rains near the Guanacaste Mountains Range.
Forecast: In the afternoon, showers and thunderstorms along the coast of the Pacific Slope, starting around noon in the South Pacific, and extending to the Central Pacific and the North Pacific during this period. Cumulative amounts between 20-40 mm and maximums between 50-60 mm are expected.
In the Central Valley, scattered rains are expected with amounts ranging between 5-15 mm and maximum 20 mm during the afternoon. For the Northern Zone and the Caribbean, scattered showers of short duration in the plains and weak rains in the mountains.
Due to the above, the IMN recommends:
• Caution in areas at risk of flooding due to sewage saturation, increased flow in rivers and streams and sectors with 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.
