Saturday’s downpour in the Central Valley of 144 liters per square meter in 8 hours broke the record of 130 liters per square meter set in 1919.

Seven times the daily average for June fell on the Central Valley in only 8 hours this past Saturday, breaking the record set in 1919

The figure is surprising if one takes into account that the average downpour in the center of the country is around 20 liters per square meter, that is to say, on Saturday there was 7 times more rain that on the daily average.

Even the lightning was intense, as shown in the images of the national weather service, the nstituto Meteorológico Nacional  (IMN).

The rains on Saturday began around 2 pm and lasted for most of the Central Valley until around 10 pm.

Today, Tropical Wave number 3 is expected to hit the entire country, though the Pacific coast and Central Valley will be hit the hardest, with lots of wind and rain. But doubt it will be anywhere the record set on Saturday.

Once the tropical wave leaves by Wednesday, says the weatherman, typical rainy season conditions are expected to prevail for the rest of the week.
