Weather Warning

Downpours in the early hours of the night in the South Pacific

August 09, 2019.
06.20 p.m.

Discussion: In this afternoon the behavior of the rains has been very isolated in the country; nevertheless, in the South Pacific they are persistently maintained, a situation favored by local factors of humidity entry and warm daytime temperatures, with moderate intensity showers with an electrical storm with accumulated between 10-20 mm.

Forecast: During the early hours of the night, downpours and thunderstorms will be maintained in the South Pacific with the possibility of extending to the Central Pacific; amounts between 20-40 mm are estimated. In the rest of the country the possibility of rains is low to manifest itself in the mountainous parts in the form of weak rain.

In addition, the tropical wave # 23 is located in Panama at this time, it is expected to enter our country on Saturday, causing rains in the Caribbean and North Zone in the morning and activate the afternoon showers in the Central and South 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. 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.
