The rainy season is not here yet, but Mother Nature is trying.
More afternoon showers are predicted for today. There have been showers in the Central Valley, the central Pacific and on the Nicoya peninsula for the last three days.
The intense heat of the mornings created the conditions for afternoon showers.
The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional put out an advisory Thursday afternoon over the rains, but although heavy at times and with some lightning the durations were short.
At least the thunderstorms serve as a reminder to expats that they have to plan now to protect electronic gear for when the rains come regularly in the afternoons.
