A combination of seasonal change and the proximity of an Intertropical Convergence Zone resulted in heavy rainfall, gusting winds and lightning and thunderstorms Monday and recent days, particularly in the Pacific coast and Central Valley.

The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional (IMN) – national weather service – is forecasting the downpours to continue for the next couple of days.

The IMN is advising of possible landslides and rivers overflowing their banks in the area of the Nicoya Peninsula, the South Pacfic and Central Valley.

Much of the flooding that could occur is a result of creeks, ditches and storm sewers clogged with debris.

During a lighting storm it is important to take refuse indoors and preferable in a dry area.

Road conditions are also affected, the heavy rainfall decreases visibility and new rains, combined with the oil residues built up over the dry season, fro slippery than normal conditions. Fog is also a concern in some areas.

It's time NOT to forget the umbrella. The seasonal change, from dry to  wet, had begun and in combination of other weather conditions, we can see heavy rain in the coming days.
