Weather Warning

Heavy downpours in some parts of the country

August 28, 2019.
05.45 pm

Diagnosis: At this time there are heavy downpours accompanied by intense storm in the North Caribbean (border sector), in the south of the Nicoya Peninsula, in the Central Pacific (around Jacó-Hermosa-Quepos-Dominical-Bahía Ballena), in the Golfo Dulce, around Golfito and Ciudad Neily. The maximum amounts reach between 20-50 mm in the last 3 hours in these sectors.

Forecast: Towards the end of the afternoon and in the early hours of the night a persistence of these rainy conditions in these sectors is anticipated. Therefore, they are estimated accumulated between 15-30 mm in this period with possible maximum amounts between 30-60 mm. It is anticipated that, as the night progresses, these rains will tend to decrease gradually.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

  • Caution in areas vulnerable to flooding due to sewer saturation, increased flow in rivers and streams, and sectors with high propensity for landslides.
  • Shelter in a safe place in case of hearing thunderstorms or perceiving strong gusts of wind near storm clouds, as well as precaution for possible fall of tree branches, power lines among others.
  • Stay informed through Twitter: @IMNCR, Facebook: National Meteorological Institute and the Website: www.imn.ac.cr
