“El Veranillo de San Juan” will take a break today (and may for the coming day or two) as a Tropical Wave  (Onda Tropical in Spanish) is expected to drench the Central Valley and North Pacific coast this morning (Thursday).

The national weather service, the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional (IMN), says the phenomenon causes a decrease in the trade winds and sets conditions for downpours.
