From February 16th to 19th, 2017

General Review

As predicted, the intensity of the wind over the country fell this week, due to the decrease in pressure in the Caribbean Sea.

Starting Friday, with the passage of a system of high pressure by the south of the United States, will be perceived moderate bursts.In addition, the stable atmospheric pattern typical of the month, favors a pattern of little cloudiness in the national territory, which coupled with the decrease in wind, will make the temperatures very warm during the day and cool at night.

At the same time, the sea breeze will be entering the coastal regions these days, so there is the possibility of occasional short-term rainfall in the Caribbean, Central and South Pacific, as well as an occasional incursion into the coastal breeze. Extreme west of the Central Valley.


Forecast

Morning: Cloudiness from little to partial in the national territory. Partly cloudy over the Caribbean and the North. Between clear and cloudy in the Pacific and lower parts of the Central Valley.

Afternoon: Partly cloudy skies in the North and Caribbean zone. From Thursday, the possibility of dispersed showers of short duration in the Central Pacific and South Pacific. In the Central Valley low to partial cloudiness with possibility of short rainfall in the extreme west of the region. In the North Pacific it will be sunny and very hot.

Night: In general for the national territory, partly cloudy to partly cloudy. Occasional bursts of wind near the mountain ranges during Friday and Saturday.
