The weather forecasters are promising a slow falling off of the windy conditions today and through the rest of the week. The forecast follows a day that saw gusts in the Central valley and on the Pacific coast of up to 100 kph, or a bit more than 60 mph.
The wind knocked down several utility poles and even a cell tower. Commercial signs were smashed all over the country.
Sunday morning appears to be the most windy period this year.
The forecast for today from the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional calls for gusts at times up to 80 kph (nearly 50 mph) with light rain on the Caribbean, the northern zone and the northern section of the Central Valley.
Winds are normal at this time of year as high pressure in the north drives the weather system.
