QCOSTARICA – The drought in Guanacaste continues. As the rainy season approaches, experts predict a 40% deficit in rainfall for May and June. But by August, with the arrival of the phenomenon known as “La Niña”, the increased rainfall will end the dry spell of the last two years.

At least that is the prediction by Juan Carlos Fallas, director of the national weather service, the  Instituto Metereológico Nacional (IMN).

Fallas said that this March and April are known for having the highest temperatures during the year. This year temperatures in Guancaste reached highs of 35° Celsius (95° Fahrenheit) during March and could increase another 3° and even reach possible highs of 41° Celsius (105° Fahrenheit) next month.

In the face of these high temperatures, the IMN calls on the population to take the necessary measures at home and communities, such as cleaning drain pipes and eavestroughs to avoid flooding once the rains arrive.

El Niño, in contract to La Niña, decreases the amount of rainfall.
