The weekend should be great for flying kites.
The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional said that strong winds will continue through at least Saturday.
But the kite better be sturdy, because the weather bulletin said that gusts in the Central Valley and Guanacaste might reach 80 to 90 kph or a bit more than 55 mph. Winds may be stronger in the mountains, it said
Kites may be a good idea, but pilots of small planes better have second thoughts. There also is a danger of falling trees and other wind-induced problems, said the institute.
