Despite winds, the Caribbean coast is not likely to see high seas until at least Monday, but Puntarenas is expected to see the highest seas of the year today at 5 p.m.
That is the prediction from the Centro de Investigación en Ciencias del Mar y Limnología at the Universidad de Costa Rica.
By Sunday the north Pacific should be seeing choppy seas due to strong winds. That prediction includes the Gulf of Nicoya and even Lake Arenal.
Through Tuesday the Caribbean is expected to be good for navigation, said the center.
Distance storms are sending higher waves to the Pacific coast, the center said. The prediction is for the higher waves to arrive Monday.
