QCOSTARICA – The rainy season is weeks away, typically starting around the middle of May, but, sporadic rains after morning high temperatures will occur in next couple of weeks, says the weatherman.

Light showers have already affected areas like the greater metropolitan area of San Jose, the Central Pacific coast and Guanacaste.

Eladio Solano, meteorologist of the National Meteorological Institute (IMN) – national weather service – explained that high temperatures and sporadic rains will be common for the next two weeks, while the transition to the rainy season is consolidated.

This will cause sporadic rain during the afternoon, as happened Friday in several areas of the capital. The night before, in the middle of the night, a light rain lasting only several minutes hit many area west of San Jose. Uncommon during this time of year.

Temperatures in area of Guanacaste, like Bagaces (south of Liberia) hit 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) this week, in the Central Valley, 35 Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) plus.

The higher than normal temperatures, up to 3 Celsius, is due to the El Niño.
