Chilly weather and winds combine to give shivers

Chilly weather and high winds are giving Costa Ricans the shivers.

The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional said that winds again today could hit 70 kph, about 43 mph.

And the overnight low ranges from 12 C. (about 54 F.) in Cartago to 17 C (about 63 F) in the rest of the Central Valley. Of course the temperatures will be much warmer on the coasts.

The weather institute said that gusts of 70 kph had been measured Tuesday in Guanacaste. The cause is a high pressure area in the north.

The weather institute also warned of possible damage to electrical lines and problems with small aircraft.

The winds will be keeping away and rain, and today is likely to be like Tuesday: Clear with some puffy white clouds.
