The Caribbean coast and the northern zone were lashed by rain Wednesday, and weather experts said that rivers were rising. Limón Centro experienced about 55.3 millimeters of rain from 7 a.m. Wednesday, according to the automatic station of the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional. That is nearly 2.2 inches. Pococí received 62 millimeters or about 2.45 inches, the institute said. The weather institute said that winds favor the continued entry of humidity and clouds over the Caribbean and the northern zone producing morning rains. But the forecast held out hope of some clearing in the afternoon and a decrease of humidity over the entire country. The Central Valley got some light rain Wednesday, but there was more in the mountains. The weather institute also warned of possible high winds, perhaps as much as 70 kph or 44 mph.
