May 12, 2019

In the North Zone and mountainous areas of the Caribbean, rainfall and rainfall are estimated with isolated storms, amounts between 10-30 mm 3-6 hours.
Precipitations are estimated until late hours in the Pacific, between 25-50 mm 3-6 hours. For its part in the Central Valley, North and the Caribbean, scattered rains are expected during the first hours of the night period, accumulated between 10-30 mm in 3 to 6 hours.
