The weekend was a wet one with a series of heavy downpours pointing out the deficiencies in the drainage and where accumulations of trash have blocked the sewers. Afternoon rains were nearly universal Saturday in the Central Valley. Guanacaste and Limón appeared to duck most of the downpours, although there could have been localized showers.
Today the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional predicts more of the same: Hot mornings with afternoon showers. The Central Valley, the Nicoya peninsula and the central and south Pacific are all scheduled for cloudy skies with evening showers and thunderstorms. The rest of the country will at least be partly cloudy with a low probability of storms.
Tobias Bolaños airport in Pavas registered 40.7 millimeters (1.6 inches) of rain through 7 a.m. Sunday and 26 millimeters (1.03 inches) thereafter.
San José, according to the automatic weather station in Barrio Aranjuez, had 11 millimeters to Sunday at 7 a.m. and 11 millimeters more afterwards. Each is about .43 of an inch.
At the Universidad de la Paz Sunday near Ciudad Colón, the automatic station registered 28.8 millimeters or about 1.13 inches.
On the Pacific coast higher than normal seas caused some flooding. That is likely to continue based on the moon being in a close approach to the earth.
