Meteorological Warning

10:20 am

Diagnosis: The Intertropical Convergence Zone is active and close to the country, generating unstable conditions, and high levels of humidity contained in the environment cause favorable conditions for the formation of rain and storm clouds in part of the country.


Forecast: During the afternoon and early evening, heavy rains and heavy showers with an electrical storm are expected in the Central and South Pacific, as well as in the Nicoya Peninsula, amounts between 40-70 mm are estimated with possible higher amounts locally . Isolated rains and showers are expected in the Central Valley, accompanied by an electrical storm with the greatest potential towards the western part, accumulated between 20-40 mm. For its part, dispersed rains of varying intensity are expected in the Northern Zone and the Caribbean, mainly in mountainous sectors. The amounts are estimated between 10-20 mm although downpours with higher amounts are possible locally.

Warning: Due to the rains of the last days in the Nicoya Peninsula, the North Zone and the South Pacific, significant saturation levels remain, paying special attention.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

  1.     Caution in areas vulnerable to flooding due to sewer saturation.
  2.     Take refuge in a safe place in case of listening to an electrical storm or perceiving strong gusts of wind near storm clouds, as well as caution for possible falling tree branches, power lines, among others.
