Weather Warning

Influence of Cold Surge decreases gradually today

February 23, 2020
10.30 a.m.

Diagnosis: This Sunday there has been a gradual decrease in the influence of cold push # 20 in the country, however, some strong gusts remain in the Central Valley and the North Pacific. They have reached between 40-90 km/h in the North Pacific, while in the Central Valley they remain between 30-70 km/h.

Forecast: Trade winds are expected to continue between moderate and strong, with maximum speeds between 30-70 km/h in the Central Valley and the lower parts of the North Pacific, while speeds between 60-90 km/h are expected in the mountains of these regions. No rain is expected this Sunday.

The cold push will gradually reduce its influence in the country today.

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.
