During this afternoon, showers and thunderstorms have been recorded in the Central Valley, the North Zone and the North Pacific, the maximum accumulated values are between 30-50 mm in the last 4 hours.
Forecast: Towards the end of the afternoon and during the night, isolated rains and downpours with thunderstorms will continue in the Central Valley, the North Zone and the North Pacific, amounts between 30-60 mm. For the Central and South Pacific, scattered moderate rains and thunderstorms are estimated in these periods, amounts between 25-50 mm.
For its part, in the mountainous parts of the Caribbean, isolated rains are expected, accumulated between 10-40 mm. Towards late hours of the night, rain is possible in coastal areas of the Caribbean

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:
- Caution due to sewage saturation in places prone to this type of flooding.
- Prevention against electrical storms and seeking shelter in a safe place in case strong gusts of wind occur or are perceived near storm clouds, due to the possible fall of tree branches, power lines, among others. These gusts can reach between 80 to 100km/h in some isolated cases.
