According to IMN experts, this week there will be an increase in trade winds. and that from today (Tuesday) to Friday the main changes will be perceived in Guanacaste, caused by an increase in atmospheric pressure north of the Caribbean Sea.

In the afternoon, the rainy episodes will be isolated and may occur especially in regions of the Central and South Pacific, dispersed in mountainous sectors of the Central Valley and Northern Zone.,” stated the IMN official forecast.
