Country comes out of the influence of Cold Surge #14

January 22, 2019
07.00 pm

Diagnosis: This afternoon the influence of the cold push # 14 on the country was declining gradually. In this way, during this day maximum gusts of up to 120 km/h were presented in La Cruz, 97 km/h in the Orosi Volcano, 78 km/h in Liberia and 70 km/h in Santa Cruz (all in Guanacaste). On the other hand, in the Central Valley there were gusts of 65 km/h in Alajuela, 71 km/h in Irazú and 62 km/h in San José.

Forecast: It is expected that the gusts persist during this night between 70 km/h and 90 km/h in the mountainous areas of the country, while in the low parts of the North Pacific and the Central Valley and Talamanca are anticipated occasional bursts among the 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. Amounts smaller than 10 mm are estimated in 24 hours.

There will be fresh conditions during the night and early morning in the Central Valley and the Cordilleras of the country in general, as a consequence of the strong wind and prevailing cloudiness.

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.
  • Stay informed through Twitter: @IMNCR, Facebook: National Meteorological Institute and the WEB Page: www.imn.ac.cr
