The accumulated in the last 3 hours have reached 10-30 mm in the mountainous parts of the Central Valley and between 20-60 mm in the regions of the Central and South Pacific. With respect to the Caribbean and the North Zone, the rains have maintained a tendency to diminish their accumulated steadily, accumulating between 10-20 mm in the last 3 hours and between 40-110 mm from midnight. In the GAM the rains have been intermittent with accumulated between 5-15 mm during this day.

Forecast: During this afternoon and in the early hours of the night will continue the rains of variable intensity, as well as the heavy rainfall in the regions of the Central and South Pacific (Puntarenas-Miramar-Barranca- Jacó- Turrubares- Parrita- Quepos- Dominical- Buenos Aires- Palmar- Drake- Golfito- Neily-Osa Peninsula City) with amounts between 20-40 mm in 3-hour periods.
