Weather expected to be mostly windy and dry

Although there may be isolated showers along the Caribbean coast and in the northern zone, the rest of the country will be windy but dry, according to weather experts.

The Weather Underground, A.M. Costa Rica’s meteorological service, said that strong to near gale force winds in the Gulf of Mexico will ease and become more moderate to fresh today as a cold front moves further into the northwestern Caribbean Sea.

High pressure will build in across the northwestern corner of the gulf through the mid-week and reach into the eastern gulf by Thursday.

The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional in San José is predicting continuing strong winds today with gusts up to 80 kph (50 mph) mainly in Guanacaste, the Central Valley and the mountains.

The Weather Underground says there is zero chance of rain in the San José area through Saturday with just a 20 percent chance of rain Sunday, Easter. That is good news for vacationers and those who are participating in outdoor religious services. The skies are expected to continue to be partly cloudy.
