Wednesday Afternoon Rain Surprised Most; Traffic Chaos Was Worse Than Normal

april-rainsQCOSTARICA – The rains surprised many on Wednesday, when shortly after 3:00pm it came down in buckets, if only for a few minutes. Showers and light rain continued well into the evening and the night in some areaS around the Central Valley.

According to the national weather service, the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional (IMN), an accumulation of between 10mm and 30mm fell in a period of about 6 hours.

Although the heavy rain wasn’t your typical “rainy season” rains and didn’t last long, only minutes, it was enough to cause flood and back up many sewers.

As to traffic, Wednesday afternoon rush hour traffic was a total nightmare, more so than a payday Friday traffic chaos.
