January 26, 2019

Diagnosis: This Saturday the high pressure values ??on the west of the Caribbean Sea keep the wind accelerated over the country. The maximum gusts recorded since midnight today were 88.0 km / h in La Cruz, 76.8 km / h in Volcán Orosi, 55.0 km / h in the Irazú Volcano, 60.4 km / h in Alajuela, 57.0 km / h in Liberia and 40.4 km / h in San José. The coverage of clouds in the country is scarce, concentrated in mountainous areas especially with some drizzle.

Forecast: Today the windy conditions will continue in the north and center of the national territory, with gusts between 50 km / h and 90 km / h in the mountainous areas of the country, towards the lower parts of the North Pacific, Central Valley and Talamanca anticipate Occasional gusts between 40 and 60 km / h. Trade winds are expected to weaken for this Sunday.

Regarding the rains, they are occasionally envisaged during this morning and at night in the coastal sector, as well as intermittent in the mountains of the Caribbean slope and North Zone. In the afternoon it is possible the occurrence of weak precipitation mainly in the mountainous parts of the Caribbean and the North Zone. Amounts smaller than 10 mm are estimated in 24 hours. In the east and north of the Central Valley occasional drizzles can be generated.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

• Extreme precautions for intense winds and their possible impact on roofs, electrical wiring, signs, trees; as well as in the mountainous parts of the country (national parks, volcanoes).
• Also, take extreme precautions for boats with sharp seas and very strong waves in the North Pacific, the Gulf of Nicoya, the Central Pacific and the Caribbean Sea, as well as aerial navigation due to turbulence in the mountainous sectors.
• Avoid burning of all kinds as they can get out of control.
