Starting today (Sunday) we can begin to see some downpours. During the transition period, it will rain, but it is not necessarily a daily event.

The metereologist said that Apri has been one of the hottest months of the year, this due to solar radiation falling perpendicularly.

There have been moments during the last couple of says that not even a breeze is blowing, making it muggy and hot, a condition very unusual in the Central Valley.

Chinchilla recommends using sunscreen when going outdoors and minimize your exposure to the sun to prevent diseases such as skin cancer.

According to the National Hurricane Center of the U.S. Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA), the Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th. The season will be more active, above average with the possible formation of up to 10 hurricanes, says the NOAA.

The East Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15th through November 30th.

Costa Rica does NOT get hurricanes. We’re blessed to be a bit too far south and so the weather patterns push the hurricanes farther north. But, a hurricane farther north can bring in heavy spin-off storms that can last several days and cause localized flooding.
