High values of pressure cause windy conditions on the country
January 23, 2019
Diagnosis: High values ??of pressure on the Caribbean Sea keep the wind accelerated over the country, however, because the cold thrust # 14 stopped affecting the country yesterday wind gusts have been lower than in previous days. The maximum gusts registered since midnight today were 92.0 km / h in La Cruz, 82.8 km / h in the Orosi Volcano, 64.2 km / h in Alajuela, 54.6 km / h in Liberia and 43.4 km / h in San José.
Forecast: For today the windy conditions are expected to continue, with gusts between 50 km / h and 90 km / h in the mountainous areas of the country, while in the lower parts of the North Pacific and the Central Valley and Talamanca are anticipated occasional gusts between 30 and 60 km / h.
Regarding the rains, it is estimated the possibility of occurrence of these in an isolated way during the morning in the coastal part of the Caribbean slope. In the afternoon it is possible the occurrence of weak precipitation mainly in the mountainous parts of the Caribbean and the North Zone. Amounts of less than 15 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.
