The Beginning of Rainy Season


Posted 20/03/2024

According to climatological analyses, current conditions indicate that we are currently in the transition period from the dry to the rainy season.  A weakening of the Northeast Trade winds (NE) and the entry of winds from the South were observed this past February of 2024.  During this transition period, isolated short-lived showers happened as well as several consecutive days without rain.  They highlight that in the coming weeks a cold thrust, located over the Caribbean Sea basin maintains a cold mass in the Central American region and is expected to approach the Panamanian latitudes, which will interact with local conditions. 

This increases the probability of significant rain events in specific locations on the Panamanian isthmus during the last ten days of March and early April 2024.  However, these events will mainly mark the beginning of the rainy season in the west of the province of Chiriquí.
