For the Central Valley, Veranillo is expected to start on Sunday (June 25), however, the phenomenon will not be intense or prolonged, there could be some downpours during the afternoons, and temperatures could range from 26° in areas such as Cartago to 34° C in parts further away from the Central Valley, such as Atenas.

For the South Pacific (Southern Zone), Caribbean (Limon) and North Zone, the Veranillo will not be perceived, these areas will have normal rains.

A Veranillo is when it’s dry and sunny during the rainy season. People call it the “short summer” because it has the same weather as the dry season, but only for a few days or weeks.
