    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The increase of trade winds two days ago in the country converts into an increase in atmospheric pressure over the Caribbean Sea, favoring heavy rains in the Caribbean and the north zone in the last 24 hours. Also in the central valley it dawned cloudy and colder.

    In the Caribbean a maximum total of between 80 and 145 mm was recorded, which enabled the growth and overflowing of the Sarapiqui River and the rivers Guatil and Guayabo in Turrialba, as well as in the rest of the north side. Similarly, there have been some landslides and falling trees due to strong winds.

    This morning, it rained in the mountains of the north, the north Caribbean and around the southern Caribbean, with estimations of amounts between 30 and 70 mm. Regarding the trade winds, they continue being quite strong, with peak gusts between 50 and 80 km /h in the North Pacific, the Central Valley and in general on the mountains of the country, which will cause cloudiness raids and light rain.

    Let´s not forget that some areas of Guanacaste remain without rain for several weeks as a result of the involvement of the El Niño phenomenon.

    In the central and south Pacific isolated showers in the afternoon and thunderstorms will occur, which could be of strong intensity at some points. Maximum amounts of 30-60 mm.

    The IMN advised to be alerted for flash flooding in urban sewage. Also pay attention to the flow of rivers, streams and ditches, as well as prone to landslides, especially in areas that have presented heavy rains in the last hours.

    In the event of lightning preferably seek a closed, dry shelter. Take care on the road as reduced visibility and wet surfaces will be given. Prevention against possible falling objects such as tree branches, power lines, etc.; caution to the aviation industry regardings strong turbulences near the mountains.
