Semana Santa will remain firmly in the dry season, according to a long-range forecast by the nation’s weather experts.
The forecast predicts temperatures in the north Pacific that may reach 36 degrees C. or about 97 degrees F. This will be a boon for vacationers and resort operators who are hoping for a boost in business.
The high predicted for the Central Valley is 32 degrees C or 88 degrees F. That’s the same prediction for the Caribbean coast.
The southern and central Pacific coasts are expected to be slightly cooler with highs around 34 degree C. or about 93 degrees F. In fact, the week is shaping up to be hot with less wind and the possibility of some short afternoon and evening showers on the Pacific coast and in the Central Valley.
The forecast from the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional said there may be some cloud cover in the mornings for the Caribbean and the northern zone and in the afternoons in the central and south Pacific and Central Valley.
Plenty of Central Valley residents will be heading out to vacation today or tomorrow, and the forecast suggests that they should invest in sunblock before they go.
