The nation’s weather forecasters say that a cold front is heading south and will arrive over Costa Rica tonight.
This means strong winds, said the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional. Most of the wind will be in the Central Valley and the north Pacific as well as the mountains, said the institute.
Earlier today there may be some showers in the Caribbean and the northern zone due to humidity coming in from the sea.
The weather institute is predicting winds of up to 100 kph or about 62 mph. Also predicted is a drop in temperature. These conditions are expected to endure until at least Saturday.
The dry season in the Central Valley and the Pacific coasts is noted for winds and chilly nights. The days usually are hot and with some humidity.
The weather institute said that property owners should take precautions against strong winds.
