Strong rainy activity this sunday
September 08, 2019
Diagnosis: The position of the Convergence Zone, the conditions of the high atmosphere, the high temperatures this morning and the entry of humidity from maritime sectors are some factors that are influencing today the increase in instability over the country.
Forecast: In this way, for this afternoon strong downpours are estimated accompanied by a thunderstorm in the Central and South Pacific, Cordillera de Guanacaste and Tilarán, Tempisque Valley, Nicoya Peninsula and its surroundings, with estimated amounts between 20-40 mm with possible maximums of up to 60 mm. In the Central Valley, North Zone and mountains of the Caribbean, showers with thunderstorms are expected with accumulated estimates between 10-30 mm and possible maximums of up to 50 mm.
During the night, rain showers are expected in the Pacific until late hours of this period with amounts between 15-30 mm, as well as possible weak rains in the Central Valley.
For this Monday, the entry of tropical wave # 32 to the country is expected in the morning, which will be leading to an increase in the probability of rain for this day.
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. Caution on the main routes of the Pacific and Central Valley.
- 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 or hail events, among others.
