Weather Warning

Intense winds will continue throughout the national territory

January 10, 2020
10.30 a.m.


Forecast: The conditions of strong trade winds with intense occasional gusts will prevail throughout this day, maximum speeds are estimated between 80-115 km / h in Central Valley and North Pacific, in the mountains there will be the most intense gusts. Strong winds will also be felt in the mountains of the Central and South Pacific. It is expected that around noon and midnight today will be when the strongest winds are present.

On the other hand, the presence of a large mass of dry air over the region, will be inhibiting cloudiness and rainfall throughout the country, with the exception of some mountainous sectors of the Central Mountain Range where there will be weak rains with amounts accumulated between 5- 15 mm throughout the day.

Weather conditions will continue extremely windy over the country at least until next Sunday.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

• Extreme precautions due to strong winds and their possible impact on roofs, electrical wiring, signs, trees; as well as in the mountainous parts of the country (national parks, volcanoes).
• Caution for boats by choppy sea and very strong waves in the North Pacific, Gulf of Nicoya, Central Pacific and the Caribbean Sea, as well as air navigation due to turbulence over the mountainous sectors.
• Avoid burning of all kinds as they can get out of control.
