Rainy conditions this afternoon in the country
January 30, 2020
Diagnosis: This morning the warm and quite humid behavior prevailed in various parts of the national territory, mainly due to the low cloud cover and the breeze contribution from the maritime sector. The maximum temperatures ranged between 25 and 33°C, while the relative humidity values ??easily exceeded 60%.
Forecast: For this afternoon, the presence of isolated rains and showers with thunderstorms is expected in the Nicoya Peninsula and in the Central and South Pacific, with accumulated between 20-40 mm, and possible higher amounts in a localized way. In the Central Valley and mountains of the Caribbean and North Zone, rain and isolated showers are anticipated with accumulated between 10-20 mm and possible localized maximums of up to 30 mm.
With regard to the night period, the chances of rain substantially.
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.
