The cold weather of the Coast has nothing to do with the weather change
The executive director of the National Institute of meteorology and hydrology (Inamhi), Carlos Naranjo, said that the current climate which is being experienced in the country, i.e., with heavy rains in isolated areas and mornings with low temperatures on the coast, is considered “normal”.
Naranjo said that from midnight on Tuesday until noon yesterday, there was a slight change in the wind circulation, usually it goes from East to West, but now is going from South to North and East to Northwest.
“This mass brings another kind of physical condition and is within the variability, it is something temporary, but this permits the entering of cold air to the southern part, which is evidenced with some cold in the mornings, but it does not mean that the rainy season is over”, said the official.
According to Naranjo, it may expected some punctual downpours, but less intense than those reported in the country so far in the year.
“The problem in the coast is that there are plenty of stagnant water, which, by evaporation, forms clouds and generates shower rains with some thunderstorms”, said Naranjo.
