The Weather Underground, A.M. Costa Rica’s weather service, says there is a slight chance of thunder showers Saturday afternoon, The service estimates just 2 millimeters of rain in the Central Valley.
Picnic organizers have wisely concluded the event at 1 p.m. each year to avoid possible afternoon showers.
Also this weekend is the calypso festival in Cahuita on the southern Caribbean. There may be some rain, but nothing to the extent that ravaged the coast from June 20. The event starts today and runs through Sunday.
Those headed into San José from the picnic at the Cervercería Costa Rica grounds near Juan Santamaría airport have a chance to visit an animal adoption fair at the Wal-Mart in Escazú. Cats and kittens, dogs and puppies will be available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
