Diagnosis: This morning the windy conditions have prevailed in different points of Guanacaste, the Central Valley and the mountain ranges of the country, with maximum gusts of 90 km/h in La Cruz, 74 km/h in Orosi Volcano, 57 km/h in Alajuela and Heredia, 51 km/h in Pavas, 55 km/h in Liberia and Santa Cruz. The coverage of clouds in the country is scarce and is concentrated especially in mountainous areas with some drizzle.

Forecast: This Sunday is expected to continue windy conditions in the north and center of the country, with gusts between 50 and 80 km/h in the mountainous areas of the country, while in the lower parts of the North Pacific, Central Valley and Talamanca, occasional gusts are estimated between 40 and 60 km/h.

With regard to temperatures, maximum levels are expected to remain low (below 22°C), in sectors close to the center of San José, Cartago and in high areas of the metropolitan area; otherwise, towards areas far from the mountain ranges west of the region where the maximum will reach between 26-29°C.

No significant rains are estimated this Sunday.

Due to the above, the IMN recommends:

  • Extreme precautions for intense winds and their possible impact on roofs, electrical wiring, signs, trees; as well as in the mountainous parts of the country (national parks, volcanoes).
  • To also increase the precaution for the vessels by sharp sea and strong waves in the North Pacific and the Gulf of Nicoya, as well as to the aerial navigation by turbulence on the mountainous sectors.
  • Avoid burning of all kinds as they can get out of control.
