Strong rainy activity on this day
May 09, 2019
Discussion: Very humid and unstable weather conditions remain on the national territory, caused by the proximity of the Intertropical Convergence Zone. In the early hours of this day, there has been little cloud cover in most of the country, boosting the rapid increase in temperatures; In addition to this, clouds of clouds are distinguished by approaching the coasts of Limón, which can generate rains in the next few hours.
Forecast: In the course of the morning, rain is expected between weak and moderate with isolated electrical storm in the province of Limón and rainfall isolated in the North Zone, amounts between 10-30 mm in 3 to 6 hours. Light rains are possible in mountain areas of the Central Valley near noon.
In the afternoon and early hours at night, the strongest rainy and electric activity will be concentrated in the regions of the Central and South Pacific, Nicoya Peninsula and the Central Valley, estimated to be between 25-50 mm 3-6 hours and even higher in localized form. In the Caribbean and the North Zone rain and rain are anticipated especially in mountainous areas during these periods, amounts between 10-30 mm 3-6 hours.
Due to the foregoing, the NMI recommends:
- Caution in areas with flood vulnerability due to saturation of sewers, increase in flow in rivers and creeks, in addition to sectors liable to landslides.
- Take refuge in a safe place in case you hear an electric storm or perceive strong gusts of wind near the storm clouds, as well as caution against possible fall of tree branches, electric laying among others.
