In the afternoon and Friday night the rainy activity will be concentrated on the Pacific slope, from the Nicoya peninsula to the South Pacific, amounts between 50 to 100mm are anticipated in periods of 6 hours. In this same period, in the Central Valley there will be isolated rains of varying intensity with amounts between 10 to 60 mm in 6 hours.

• 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.
• Caution to drivers due to reduced visibility and wet roads.
