Meteorological Notice-IMN-230720-Rainy conditions will be in the Pacific during the afternoon and evening

July 23, 2020
02.00 p.m.

Diagnosis: The proximity of the Intertropical Convergence Zone together with the high moisture content are factors that favor evening rains. Currently there are 20 mm accumulated rainfall in the North Zone, 60 mm in the South Pacific, 30 mm in the North Caribbean and up to 15 mm in the Central Valley.

Forecast: For the afternoon and early evening, showers and showers with a thunderstorm are expected in the Central and South Pacific, the amounts are estimated between 20-60 mm. In the southern part of the Nicoya peninsula, as well as in the mountainous western parts of the Central Valley, intermittent rains are expected during the same period, amounts between 5-35 mm are estimated.

The proximity of tropical wave # 22 that is in the east of Panama will favor during the afternoon and evening the increase in trade winds in the Caribbean and Central Valley. It is expected that tropical wave # 22 will enter the country between today and early tomorrow morning, favoring morning rains in the Caribbean and North Zone.

Warning: although it is forecast rainy this Thursday in the Pacific, the passage of tropical wave # 22 will be further destabilizing the Intertropical Convergence Zone, which will favor the formation of a low pressure system on the Pacific coast, favoring the increase of heavy precipitation in the Pacific during tomorrow Friday.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

Caution in areas vulnerable to flooding due to sewer saturation.
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.
