The next three days will bring a refreshing break from the heat we’ve been experiencing. Due to a cold front, we will experience strong winds. There will also be isolated rainfall in the Caribbean that will alleviate the drought.
A high pressure system is to blame, or thank, for the cool winds. The temperature will be especially cool in Heredia, Coronado, Goicoechea, Moravia, La Union, Curridabat and Cartago. You may even find yourself saying “I’m cold” if you live near the mountains.
The Central Valley should expect gusts of wind up to 70 km/hour. The North can expect gusts up to 50 km/h, the North Pacific 90 km/h, and the mountain ranges up to 100 km/h.
The intense winds can cause damage to roofs, electrical wiring, trees, and signs. The sea will also be affected. High waves are expected off the North Pacific and Gulf of Nicoya coasts. Boaters and bathers should not be in those areas and should always be careful of rip tides in any area.
