From  June 22th to 25th, 2017

General Review

Rainy conditions are expected on Thursday and Friday in the Pacific, Central Valley, North Zone and mountains of the Caribbean; which are due to different factors, such as the tropical wave transit # 15 (Thursday), as well as the proximity of the Intertropical Convergence Zone, the warm morning temperatures and the high humidity content in the atmosphere.


For the weekend there will be an increase in winds in the central and northern part of Guanacaste, particularly on Saturday in the Central Valley, so it is anticipated that the rains will be very isolated or nonexistent in these regions, while in the rest of the country itself rainy season pattern is expected.
