As the latest analysis shows, the cold front # 4 will be arriving in the country this weekend. Given this, it is estimated that trade winds begin to accelerate again until reaching speeds between very strong to intense from Thursday night, being Saturday when the major gusts are reached, amounts higher than 120 km / h are estimated in the north of Guanacaste. This new period of intense winds will last at least until Monday.

In addition, the proximity of the cold mass associated with the cold front over the north of the country will be causing a significant reduction in daytime temperatures in the Central Valley and to a lesser extent in the north of the national territory.

On the other hand, the Caribbean, the North Zone and the east / north sector of the GAM will experience an increase in cloud cover and rainfall, intermittent rains are anticipated on Friday and weekend in Limón and mountainous areas of the Zone North, as well as drizzles in the Central Valley.
