Key highway reopened, but highway officials issue warning

The nation’s road agency said today that Ruta 32 was reopened about 7 a.m. Monday after crews cleared some 400 cubic meters of debris that fell across the road Sunday evening.

However the agency, the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad, issued a warning about using the road because of the wet conditions that contribute to slides. It urged motorists to avoid the route during the nights. This is the San José-Limón route.

There will be plenty of wet conditions to worry about. The
Instituto Meteorológico Nacional says that the nation is entering the months with the heaviest precipitation.

The institute said that today would be more of the same with warm mornings giving away to cloudy and humid afternoons with a good chance of electrical storms in the Pacific coast, the Central Valley, the northern zone and the mountains of the Caribbean.

Much of the Central Valley was spared heavy rains Monday, but the mountains to the west took a beating with thunderstorms and plenty of lightning.
