That bright mornings with blue skies actually are helping to generate afternoon showers.
The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional said Monday that the lack of cloud cover was one reason that hot air put more moisture into the atmosphere.
That is expected to happen again today with afternoon or evening showers and perhaps electrical storms in the Pacific m the Central Valley and the northern zone.
Partly cloudy skies are predicted for the Caribbean, the weather agency said.
The weather institute put out a midday warning of heavy storms Monday, but they did not materialize in the metro area.
