November 28, 2019
Diagnosis: This Thursday, unstable conditions generated by the passage of tropical wave # 53 and the effect of cold thrust # 6 have been maintained. As a result of this, intense and intermittent downpours with thunderstorms have been recorded in the Caribbean regions, the North Zone and the vicinity of the Cordilleras of the Central Valley and Guanacaste mainly.
The accumulated since midnight in the Caribbean and the North Zone range between 75-160 mm; while in the Central Valley the accumulated remain between 20-80 mm. This has caused the presence of rivers grown in the regions of the Caribbean and the North Zone, as well as the saturation of soils in various sectors of these regions and in the vicinity of the mountain ranges of the country. On the other hand, trade winds continue strong with gusts between 60-95 km / h.
Forecast: Tonight, a persistence of rainy conditions in the Caribbean and the North Zone is expected, with accumulated between 15-30 mm. The Central Valley and North Pacific will be between partial to cloudy with occasional rains in the mountains and its surroundings with accumulated between 10-20 mm. In the Central and South Pacific they will have isolated rains in high areas with accumulated less than 10 mm.
Likewise, the analyzes show that during the early morning there will be an uptick in the rainy activity in the regions of the Caribbean and the North Zone with accumulated between 30-60 mm and possible maximum points of up to 80 mm. In addition, during this period rainfall will also be manifested in the mountainous parts and vicinity of the Central Valley and Guanacaste with accumulated between 20-40 mm.
It is estimated that the strong rainy activity tends to decrease substantially after noon this Friday, as the cold push ceases to affect the country.
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 in areas vulnerable to flooding due to sewer saturation, increased flow in rivers and streams, and in areas prone to landslides.
- 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.
