General Review

This week the rainy season pattern will persist over the national territory, due to the proximity of the Intertropical Convergence Zone to the country and the possible approach of at least two new tropical waves, one on Monday and one in the second half of the week.

Given this scenario, rainy conditions and the presence of electrical storms are estimated with occasional strong wind gusts, which will be particularly intense in sectors near the mountain ranges, from all regions of the country.

Such behavior is expected in the Central Valley, the Pacific, the North Zone and in the mountains and suburbs of the Caribbean. On the coast of Limón, less intense rain is anticipated.

Nights: In the Central Valley, the North Zone and the mountains of the Caribbean, it is anticipated mostly cloudy with possible isolated rains in the first hours. In the particular case of the Pacific anticipated isolated showers with dispersed storm.
