Since last week, the weather has been typical of the rainy season, with hot and humid mornings followed by afternoon downpours. In fact, many believe that the rainy season is already upon us, instead of the typical mid-May start.

The official weather forecast from the IMN for this Friday, March 17, 2023:

“A sign of local morning instability remains on Friday, near the South and Central Pacific coasts, with the possibility of localized showers that favor cloudy conditions. In the afternoon, downpours accompanied by an electrical storm are expected again, with the variant of being increasingly scattered.

These are foreseen both in the Central Valley and in the Central Pacific, South Pacific and surroundings of the Nicoya Peninsula.”
