QCOSTARICA — The Intertropical Convergence Zone remains active over southern Central America, causing a low-pressure system over the Caribbean Sea, which will facilitate the presence of rainy conditions for the first days of this week.

Currently, this system maintains the possibility of cyclonic formation, and rainy conditions are expected to increase, mainly in the North and South Pacific of Costa Rica.

The Central Valley will remain with intermittent rains in the afternoons.

Gabriela Chinchilla, meteorologist at the national weather service, the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional de Costa Rica (IMN), warned about the high soil saturation that is registered in some parts of the country.

CNE – national emergency commission – authorities advise the population to monitor the state of the rivers for the possibility of flooding.

There are only a few more weeks to the rainy season, also known as the green season, ot for some as “winter”, that typically runs mid-May through mid-November.

This year, the season is affected by El Niño, a weather event that is associated with severe climate changes – causing either extreme drought or heavy rainfall, depending on which ocean side you are on. El Niño can trigger droughts and heat waves in parts of Costa Rica, as the ocean temperatures in the Pacific Ocean can become unusually warm.
