Rainy activity will be extended at night
September 01, 2019
Discussion: As mentioned in the morning hours; The proximity of the Intertropical Convergence Zone and coupled with local factors such as warm morning temperatures and the entry of moisture from the maritime sectors, have led to heavy downpours and intense thunderstorms during this afternoon in the Central Valley, South Pacific, North Pacific and North Zone with maximum accumulated of 35 mm.
Forecast: In the remainder of the afternoon there will be showers of varying intensity and showers with thunderstorms in the regions of the South Pacific, northern Guanacaste, North Zone and Central Valley, amounts between 25-50 mm are estimated, with possible amounts superior in a localized way. This rainy activity will gradually extend to the Central Pacific and the Nicoya Peninsula.
During the first hours of the night, rain and showers are expected with a thunderstorm in the Pacific and North Zone, accumulated between 20-40 mm. On the other hand in the Central Valley and mountains of the Caribbean, scattered weak rains and fog banks are possible, amounts less than 10 mm.
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 a 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.
