The maximum gusts recorded since midnight today were 87 km / h in La Cruz, 90.2 km / h in Orosi Volcano, 58 km / h in Alajuela, 55 km / h in Pavas, 60 km / h in Liberia, 53 in San Joaquín, 57 in Santa Ana and 47 km / h in San José.

Regarding the rains, no significant rainfall is expected due to the dry pattern that has been maintained for several days.

As for temperatures, it is estimated that the maximums remain fresh in sectors near the center of San José, Cartago and in high areas of the metropolitan area (not above 24 ° C), while on the coasts and plains are expected warm maximums that oscillate between 30 and 36 ° C.

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).
  •     Also, take precautions for the boats by sharp sea and strong waves in the North Pacific and the Gulf of Nicoya, as well as the aerial navigation by turbulence on the mountainous sectors.
  •     Avoid burning of all kinds as they can get out of control.
