The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The odds that the phenomenon El Niño will affect Central America during the dry season are low, reported the Regional Water Resources Committee (CRRH).
“The probability is very low that during the quarter (December to March) we will develop a warm or cold event due to El Niño,” released CRRH, a unit of the Central American Integration System (SICA).
El Niño is a phenomenon that brings drought or excessive rainfall in different parts of Central America.
According to the report released today by the CRRH, the probabilities of occurrence of El Niño between December and March are less than 20%.
In reaching this conclusion, the CRRH analyzed the evolution of temperature anomalies throughout the South Pacific and Tropical Atlantic.
They also took into account similar years, international rates of air and ocean temperatures, and the likelihood of rain in the region, according to the report.
The references indicated that sea water temperatures closer to Central America will remain slightly higher than normal, that the region will have fewer cold fronts, and no precipitation is expected out of the ordinary, according to the Committee.
In Costa Rica they expect a normal season. (EFE)
