Weather Warning

Rainy activity of variable intensity during this Friday

July 12, 2019
06.55 a.m.

Discussion: The Intertropical Convergence Zone is positioned this day on the country generating unstable and very humid conditions. From the early hours of the day cloud cores are maintained in coastal areas of both the Pacific and the Caribbean, causing in turn rainfall in the South Pacific, as well as in the North Caribbean and North Zone with accumulated less than 20 mm in the last 6 hours.

Forecast: In the course of the morning, rains of variable intensity and electrical storm are expected in the North Caribbean and North Zone, amounts between 10-40 mm in 6-hour lapses. The rains may extend to the South Caribbean. In Upala rain between weak and moderate is expected with possible thunderstorm in this period. In the South Pacific, scattered rains are foreseen (sectors such as Osa Peninsula, Golfito, Pavones); However, it is estimated that rainfall decreased in the second part of the morning.
During the afternoon, isolated thunderstorms with thunderstorms are expected in the Pacific and Central Valley, with amounts between 20-60 mm in 6 hours. In the North Zone and the Caribbean there will be rains and showers, especially in the mountainous sectors and in an isolated way in the low parts, accumulated, between 10-30 mm in 6 hours. In Upala, isolated showers are expected, amounts between 10-25 mm in 6-hour lapses.

The rains may extend to the early hours of the night in the Pacific regions.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

  • Caution in areas with vulnerability to flooding due to saturation of sewers, increased flow in rivers and streams and sectors with high propensity to landslide.
  • Shelter in a safe place in case of listening to thunderstorm or perceive strong gusts of wind near storm clouds, as well as caution for possible fall of tree branches, power lines among others.
  • Stay informed through Twitter: @IMNCR, Facebook: National Meteorological Institute and the WEB page: www.imn.ac.cr
