Pilgrims who take advantage of the weekend to pay a call on the Virgen de los Ángeles in Cartago probably will have decent weather through Saturday.
Today’s forecast is for more wind in the Central Valley. The wind keeps the rain at bay. But the day is predicted to be hot, similar to much of July.
Still there was thunderstrom activity early today in the central Pacific and in the southern part of the country.
There also may be some rain in the late afternoon on the Pacific coast both Friday and Saturday. The story for Sunday is still uncertain, although the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional said that some unstable weather might be moving in.
More and more pilgrims are en route to the basilica in Cartago where the image of the Virgen de los Ángeles can be found. She is the patroness of the nation, and more than 2 million persons are expected to walk there by early Thursday. That day is a national holiday.
