Nation’s weather turns to normality of season

The low pressure system that drenched the country over the weekend has moved to the north and west, and weather experts say that the country is returning to the rainy season norm of hot mornings and thunderstorms in the afternoon for the Pacific coast and the Central Valley.

Clouds and perhaps light rain are predicted for the Caribbean coast.

The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional warned of saturated ground and the continued possibility of landslides and flooding due to blocked drainage systems. However, it said that rain this week probably would be less than average.

The national emergency commission has lifted the weather alerts of the weekend and said that only six persons remain in shelters in Heredia and that was because they were awaiting an economic evaluation for government aid.

However, commission experts were studying places where there have been slides and also where there was damaged infrastructure.
