Moderate winds are predicted for the Central Valley and the north Pacific today in contrast with the 100-kph winds that swept the area Monday.
The winds were so strong that the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional issued a special bulletin at 10 a.m.
The weather today might include rain in the northern zone and the Caribbean, said the weather agency. The same is true for the central and south Pacific with possible evening showers.
In the Central Valley the reduction in wind will mean an increase in the temperature, said the institute.
The weather institute said that the 100-kph (62-mph) winds were clocked in the Guanacaste mountains. Elsewhere 60- to 70-kph winds were the norm. That’s 37 to 43 mph. The winds were blamed on a cold front that was passing over Central America and the Caribbean.
The weather agency urged precautions.
