Meteorological Report N ° 1

Tropical wave # 24 generates strong affectation during this day

August 14, 2019.
10.50 a.m.

Discussion: Tropical wave # 24 is on the country generating strong effects this morning in the Caribbean and the North Zone to a lesser extent in the Central Valley. Maximum accumulated between 50-100 mm are recorded in the last 6 hours, the highest in North Caribbean and North Zone.

Forecast: In the remainder of the morning there will be showers of varying intensity and showers with thunderstorms in the North Zone and the Caribbean region, amounts between 30-60 mm are estimated and possible greater accumulated in a timely manner. In the Central Valley and mountainous sectors of the Pacific, occasional rainfall is expected with accumulated between 5-20 mm

In the afternoon, heavy rains and showers with thunderstorms are expected in the Central and South Pacific regions, in addition to the Nicoya Peninsula; Estimated amounts between 40-80 mm, higher amounts may be presented locally. For the Central Valley, rainfall and isolated showers are forecast, accumulated between 15-30 mm. For its part in the North Zone and the Caribbean, intermittent rains of variable intensity are expected, amounts between 30-60 mm.

During the night rainy conditions will be maintained in most of the country, the strongest in the Pacific regions.

It is estimated that the tropical wave decreases its affectation gradually in the night period; however, low pressure in the Pacific Ocean will continue to modulate weather conditions causing very rainy conditions to prevail.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

  • Caution in areas vulnerable to flooding due to sewer saturation, increased flow in rivers and streams during the afternoon.
  • Caution in landslide prone regions because soil saturation will continue.
  • 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.
  • Stay informed through Twitter: @IMNCR, Facebook: National Meteorological Institute and the Website: www.imn.ac.cr
