Q COSTA RICA NEWS – The Tropical Storm, that turned to a Tropical Depression and later today to become a Hurricane that promises more rain in Costa Rica, brought a drop in temperatures, mainly in the lower parts of the Central Valley.

The national weather service, the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional (IMN) reports temperatures from 4°C a 18°C (40°F a 65°F). That is under the blanket weather in Costa Rica.

For example, the temperature this morning in Montes de Oca (San Pedro) was 15°C and Pavas 17°C. However, in higher places like the weather station at Chitarria (Escazu) the temperature dipped to 9°C and 4°C at the Irazú volcano. Normal early morning temperatures some 4°C higher.
