Atmospheric instability could bring rains this weekend

February 14, 2013

According to the National Meteorological Institute (IMN), atmospheric instability affecting most of Costa Rica could cause intermittent showers and cloudy skies in the Central Valley and in the Caribbean region.

IMN meteorologist Daniel Poleo said he expected an increase in cloudy conditions, primarily in San José and the northwestern province of Guanacaste between Thursday and Saturday.

The Central and South Pacific will have clear skies while the Northern Zone will be partially cloudy.

An increase in winds is expected on Saturday in most of the country, and IMN forecasts maximum temperatures in the Central Valley will reach highs of 30 degrees Celsius and lows of 10 degrees.

February rain is not typical as Costa Rica’s dry season runs from December through May.
