Showers and thunderstorm this afternoon

September 28, 2022
11.10 a.m.

Discussion: Local factors such as warm morning temperatures and the entry of sea breezes will lead to cloudy conditions and the presence of rain, downpours and thunderstorms during the afternoon and early evening.

Forecast: During the afternoon, mostly cloudy skies are expected nationwide with isolated but strong downpours and a thunderstorm in the Pacific and North Zone, amounts between 20-75 mm are estimated in periods of 6 hours, with possible higher values in a timely manner. For its part, in the Central Valley, and sectors adjacent to the Caribbean, isolated rains and storms are expected, accumulated between 20-45 mm in periods of 6 hours.

For the night period, fog is expected in the mountain ranges and Central Valley, as well as rains in coastal areas of the Pacific and North Zone with amounts between 20-50 mm.

Warning: High levels of soil saturation remain in the North Zone, North Pacific, in addition to the mountainous parts of the Central Valley, Central and South Pacific, so they are extremely vulnerable sectors. Caution is recommended in case of possible incidents due to landslides or floods.


Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

  • Caution for sewage saturation and possible flash floods.
  • Prevention before an electrical storm and seek shelter in a safe place in case of strong gusts of wind appearing or being perceived near storm clouds, due to the possible fall of tree branches, power lines, among others.
  • Stay informed through social networks, Twitter: @IMNCR, Facebook: National Meteorological Institute CR and the WEB page: www.imn.ac.cr
