Fallas said the weather radar will help in their preventive work, but, for now, will only cover the Central Valley.

The director added that the instrument will also help to track the speed of ash expulsion from volcanoes.

According to Fallas, the rainy season for 2015 will be under the effect of El Niño, which implies a decrease in rainfall.

The national weather forecaster said the rainy season this year is expected to start between April 1 and 5 for the Pacific South, then the Central Pacific from April 26 to 30) and then in the Central Valley between May 6 and 10. Gradually, the rains will spread to the North Pacific May 16 and 20.
