Weather Report N°7

Very windy conditions are maintained during this Tuesday

January 22, 2019
7.00 a.m.

Diagnosis: This Tuesday continues the influence of the cold push # 14 on Central America and the Caribbean Sea. In the last 6 hours there have been maximum gusts of 119 km / h in La Cruz, 91 km / h in the Orosi Volcano, 72 km / h in Liberia and 81.6 km / h in Santa Cruz (all in Guanacaste). On the other hand, in the Central Valley there have been gusts of 63.7 km / h in Alajuela, 65.6 km / h in Irazú and 47.8 km / h in San José.

Forecast: It is estimated that the cold push # 14 continue its displacement towards the East of the Atlantic Ocean, decreasing its influence on the region gradually during this day, however, it is foreseen that the gusts during this morning and afternoon can reach between 70 km / h and 90 km / h in the mountainous areas of the country and in particular the North Pacific region; at some points the gusts of wind could exceed 100 km / h.

On the other hand, in the low areas of the Central Valley, in Talamanca and the North Caribbean, occasional gusts are anticipated between 40 and 70 km / h.

Regarding the rains, it is estimated the possibility of occurrence of these in an isolated way in the slope of the Caribbean and the North Zone, mainly in the mountainous parts. We estimate amounts between 2-7 mm in 12 hours and accumulated maximums of 10-20 mm in periods of 24 hours.

There will be fresh conditions throughout the day in the Central Valley, as a consequence of the windy conditions and the cloudiness prevailing in the mountains of the east and north of the Valley.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

• Extreme PRECAUTIONS FOR HEAVY WINDS AND THEIR POSSIBLE AFFECTION IN CEILINGS, ELECTRICAL WIRING, HEADS, TREES; as well as in the mountainous parts of the country (national parks, volcanoes).

 
• Extend also the CAUTION FOR VESSELS BY SEAWELLING AND VERY STRONG SURFING IN THE NORTHERN PACIFIC, NICOYA GULF, CENTRAL PACIFIC AND THE CARIBBEAN SEA, as well as aerial navigation by turbulence
on the mountainous sectors.
 
• AVOID BREEDS OF ALL TYPES since they can get out of control.

Next report: today at 7 p.m.
