General Review

For this Thursday, the country is no longer under the influence of Cold Thrust #18 and the arrival of a mass of dry air will be generating a gradual decrease in precipitation.

Between Thursday and Friday the trade wind will have a slight decrease compared to previous days, maintaining moderate to strong gusts in Guanacaste (maximums between 70-90 km/h) and moderate in the Central Valley (maximums between 40-55 km/h) . Little rainfall is expected for the remainder of this week, only possible occasional morning rains are expected in the Caribbean and Northern Zone (higher probability on Sunday) and very isolated showers in mountainous areas of the Central and South Pacific.

Cold Thrust #19 is expected to enter the northern Caribbean Sea on Sunday. This new thrust will be weaker than the #18 that affected the country the first part of the week, its associated cold front is not projected to reach the national territory and the main impact it will be generating is an increase in the wind over the country.


Forecast

Mornings: Lightly to partly cloudy. Possible occasional rains in the Caribbean and North Zone. Windy in the center and north of the country.

Afternoons: Prevalence of partial cloudiness nationwide. Possible isolated showers in mountains of the Central and South Pacific. Windy in the center and north of the country.

Nights: Lightly to partly cloudy. Possible scattered rains in the Caribbean and North Zone on the weekend.
