The forecast for today is for the usual hot, sticky weather in the mornings followed by heavy downpours everywhere except on the Caribbean coast.
The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional said that this probably will be what happens for the next few days.
There is a nearly stationary low pressure area in the Pacific off northern Central America that is generating instability here.
There were downpours in the mountains around the Central Valley Thursday, but only a few sprinkles in downtown San José despite threatening skies in the afternoon.
A check of the institute’s automatic weather network shows that this was the situation in nearly all of the country. But today promises to be wetter.
