Brrr… San José registers coldest day in 15 years

December 14, 2010

Costa Rica’s National Meteorological (IMN) headquarters located in Barrio Amón in San José recorded a low of 12.8 degrees Celsius (55 degrees Fahrenheit) on Tuesday marking the coldest day in the capital city in at least 15 years.

On Dec. 5, 1995 San José’s meteorological station recorded a temperature of 13.4 degrees Celsius and, since then, temperatures have not dropped below that until this week.

On Tuesday, winds reached 70 kilometers per hour in the Central Valley. The IMN said that the strong gusts and chills will last through Wednesday, slowly improving throughout the day.

The IMN forecasts weak to moderate rains in the Caribbean region and Costa Rica’s Southern Zone.

The institute predicts winds between 40-60 kilometers per hour and waves between three and four meters high in Costa Rica’s Caribbean waters. In the Pacific, meteorologists expect winds between 35 and 55 kilometers per hour with waves of up to two meters in height through Wednesday.
