These are easy days for Costa Rican weather forecasters. Sunny, hot with some clouds and sometimes windy conditions.
That is a forecast they could run off on a copy machine from Christmas until mid-March.
Of course, there always is the chance of some rain on the Caribbean coast this time of year. Such is the case with the forecast for the weekend. An increase in atmospheric humidity means there may be some weak showers in the northern zone and the Caribbean, according to the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional. And maybe even some showers in the mountains of the Central Valley in the evening, the forecast said.
So according to the weather forecast, the morning in the Pacific coasts will be sunny with some clouds in the Central Valley and perhaps showers in the mountains. Partly cloudy or cloudy skies will dominate in the northern zone and in the Caribbean with the possibility of showers.
Afternoon in the Pacific will be clear with winds from the north while in the Central Valley the clouds will be dispersed by the winds. Again there is a chance of afternoon showers in the Caribbean and the northern zone.
Evenings may bring showers to the Caribbean and the northern zone while the skies over the Pacific are expected to be nearly clear or partly cloudy.
Highs are likely to be around 30 C (86 F) in the Central Valley, the Caribbean and the northern zone and perhaps as high as 35 C (95 F) in the north Pacific.
The Central Valley may see overnight lows in the 13 C range, some 55 F.
