Weekend weather was drier than forecasters predicted

The country beat the odds over the weekend, and there was a lot more sunshine than rain.

Forecasters had predicted a possibility of heavy rain of up to 80 percent for Sunday.

The forecast for today calls for a dry morning but with high temperatures driving the creation of clouds and possible rain showers of short duration in the Pacific coast, the Central Valley as well as in the mountains of the Caribbean and the northern zone, according to the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional.

There is a low pressure area between Cuba and Venezuela that is moving west. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said there is a very low probability that the weather system will spawn a tropical cyclone. But there is likely to be heavier rains in the next few days.

The tropical depression in the Pacific has become Tropical Storm Sonia, but it is too far north to have an impact on Costa Rica’s weather. The storm was located overnight between the tip of the Baja Peninsula and the Mexican mainland.
