Persistent rainy conditions in the country
August 7, 2019.
Diagnosis: At this time a pattern of rainfall of variable intensity is maintained in various parts of the Central Valley, the North Zone and the Pacific regions of the country. This is the product of instability caused by the Intertropical Convergence Zone. The accumulated rainfall in the last 4 hours is between 10-40 mm in the GAM and the North Zone, while in the Pacific regions there are maximums of up to 45 mm.
Forecast: In the remainder of the afternoon and during the night, showers of variable intensity are expected with a thunderstorm in the Pacific (especially in the north and central part), in the Central Valley and the mountains of the North Zone with amounts between 15 -30 mm In the Caribbean mountains, isolated rains, accumulated 10-20 mm, are expected, while in the coastal part of Limón little rainfall is expected. It is estimated that the rainy activity decreases as the second half of the night progresses, disappearing at dawn.
On the other hand, mention that at this moment the Tropical Wave # 22 is being monitored, which is located in the Caribbean Sea on the Gulf of Darien in Panama. It is estimated that it crosses the national territory during the course of Thursday, however, the analyzes generated so far do not show scenarios of extreme rainfall due to this phenomenon. This Thursday will be an update of the information regarding the Wave and its possible impact on the country.
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 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.
