Expats can tell their friends and family in the Great White North that the temperatures here are in the teens, too.
Never mind that there is a slight difference between the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales. Early today the temperature in Cartago was 15.4 C (59.7 F), and the automatic weather station in San José reported a temperature of 17.4 C (63.3 F).
The chilly weather has been amplified by winds of from 10 to 20 kph, which are not as strong as last week.
The Institution Meteorológico Nacional said that windy weather will continue through the first few days of the week due to high pressure in the Caribbean. Gusts of up to 85 kph (about 53 mph) are expected in the mountains and in areas of the Central Valley and the north Pacific, said the weather service.
Other areas of the Pacific will see clear skies, said the forecast.
The Caribbean and the northern zone will see partly cloudy conditions and perhaps some rain.
