The winds are expected to moderate today, but there still is the likelihood of gusts up to 50 kph in the mountains.
The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional said that the atmosphere remains stable and dry and the humidity will be low today. That means clouds have less chance of forming. So the day is expected to be bright with blue skies in most parts of the country.
The winds have been in excess of 70 kph (44 mph) in many parts of the country so less wind will be welcomed.
The weather institute noted that such gusty conditions with blue skies are typical of January in Costa Rica.
