Rains Expected to Continue All Week

It’s been raining a lot in Costa Rica lately, and it won’t stop anytime soon. The National Emergency Commission released this statement this morning:

The IMN (Instituto Meteorológico Nacional) is following a low-pressure system that is around 500 kilometers (310 miles) off the northern Pacific coast of our country.

Current analyses show that the system will grow in strength over the next five days. However, it is not expected to directly affect the country because its path is moving northwest, further out in the Pacific.

Given that this low pressure is part of the Intertropical Convergence Zone, vespertine rains will continue to be strong in the afternoon and early evening throughout this week.

As such, the IMN will continue following this system’s evolution to anticipate changes in its strength or path. If there is a modification to the current forecast or variation in the current analyses, notices will be published immediately for the general population.


Stay informed with the IMN’s releases on their website and social media, as well as the general media, both in relation to this system as well as predicting late-afternoon rains in the country.

Here are links to the National Emergency Commission’s Facebook page, and the main page for the INM. Both pages are in Spanish.
