IMN-210319-Increase in the trade winds as of this Friday
Increase in the trade winds as of this Friday
march 21, 2019.
Diagnosis: The positioning of a high pressure system in the south of the United States has generated an increase in atmospheric pressure over the Caribbean Sea causing an acceleration of the wind over the region.
Forecast: It is expected that tomorrow's income from this system to the Caribbean Sea will cause a significant increase in the magnitude of the wind, particularly Friday and Saturday, with gusts around 100-110 km / h in the high parts of the country and close to the 70-80 km / h in the lower areas of the Central Valley and the North Pacific.
On the other hand, the arrival of a mass of dry air that will maintain cloudiness conditions from little to partial over most of the country is anticipated, however, some drizzle is possible in the mountainous areas of the Caribbean slope as well as some downpours isolated in the Central and South Pacific during the afternoons.
Regarding the temperatures, they are expected very warm in the coasts and the plains of the country during the day, while at night they will be very fresh mainly in the high areas of the Central Valley.
Due to the above, the IMN recommends:
- Caution for strong winds and their possible impact on roofs, electrical wiring, signs, trees; as well as in the mountainous parts of the country (national parks, volcanoes).
- Prevention for boats by sharp sea and strong waves in the North Pacific and Gulf of Nicoya, as well as air navigation due to turbulence in the mountainous sectors.
- Avoid burning of all kinds as they can get out of control.
