Forecast: Throughout the afternoon and early evening, showers with thunderstorms are expected in the Pacific regions with maximum accumulated between 15-50 mm for the Central Pacific and between 20-60 mm for the South Pacific in periods of 6 hours . In the North Pacific scattered rains are anticipated in the Nicoya Peninsula with maximum amounts of 10-20 mm in the same period.For the Central Valley, generalized rains are expected during the afternoon and early evening hours, as well as the possibility of an electrical storm. In terms of precipitation will be affecting to a greater extent east of the Valley (Cartago, Curridabat, Tres ríos and outskirts), north (Heredia and its surroundings) and south (Desamparados-Alajuelita-Escazú-Santa Ana-Puriscal and its surroundings) with accumulated maximum between 10-40 mm in periods of 6 hours. Towards the west of the Valley, isolated rains between 5-20 mm and fog bank are expected at the end of the afternoon.
On the other hand, for the mountainous sectors of the Caribbean (Sarapiquí, Vara Blanca) and Zona Norte (La Fortuna, San Carlos, Ciudad Quesada, among others) isolated rains are anticipated between 20-40 mm of maximum accumulated in 6 hours.
Due to the above, the IMN recommends:
