Discussion: The Intertropical Convergence Zone is very active over the country, causing cloudiness and rainfall in the Caribbean, the North Zone and to a lesser extent in the South Pacific, they are accumulated between 10-25 mm in the last 6 hours.


Forecast: This morning, rainfall of variable intensity and thunderstorm in the Caribbean and North Zone are expected, amounts 25-50 mm are estimated. Part of the cloud cover can reach the Central Valley and northern Guanacaste, causing in turn drizzles and weak rains, especially in the mountains, accumulated less than 5 mm. On the other hand, on the coasts of the Central and South Pacific there will be partial and total cloudiness with possible scattered rains, amounts less than 10 mm.

In the afternoon, the rainy activity will be concentrated mainly in the Central and South Pacific regions, showing isolated showers and thunderstorms estimated between 20-50 mm. For the rest of the country rain and scattered showers are expected, especially in the mountainous parts and its surroundings, amounts between 5-20 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 in areas prone to 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.
  • Caution to drivers due to reduced visibility and wet roads.
