General Review

For this second half of the week it is estimated that trade winds will continue to be strong, which will be due to the influence of high levels of atmospheric pressure in the Central American region and the Caribbean Sea. Thus, gusts close to 100 km/h are expected in the mountainous parts and between 60-90 km/h in the lower parts of the Central Valley and the North Pacific.

On the other hand, the rains will increase significantly in the province of Limón, the North Zone of the country and in the mountain ranges, being the period between Saturday and Sunday the one of more precipitations. Also, fresh temperatures are expected in the early hours in the GAM and the mountains of the country in general, as well as very hot on the coasts and plains.


Forecast

Mornings: In the North Pacific, cloudiness is expected from low to partial and very windy (light rains in the mountain ranges and its surroundings). The rest of the Pacific will be partly cloudy. In the Central Valley, variable cloudiness is expected with light rains in the Cordillera and its surroundings. In the Caribbean and the North Zone it is expected to be cloudy with rain (between Friday and Sunday).

Afternoons: In the North Pacific and the Central Valley, partial and windy cloudiness is expected (light rains in the mountain ranges and its surroundings). In the rest of the Pacific it is estimated to be partly cloudy with possible rains in high and nearby areas. In the Caribbean and the North Zone it is expected to be cloudy with rains especially in high areas and its surroundings between Friday and Sunday.

Nights: In the North Pacific and the Central Valley, partial clouds are expected (light rains in the mountain ranges and its surroundings). In the rest of the Pacific, partial cloudiness is expected. In the Caribbean and the North Zone it will be cloudy with rains between Friday and Sunday.
