African sands are cutting visibility

Visibility in the Central Valley and on the Caribbean coast is being hampered by sand being carried by the winds from the Sahara in Africa, according to the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional.

Costa Rica frequently hosts material driven by the winds from Africa, but the amount now is enough to impede precipitation, said the weather institute. The sand and the wind makes the air dry and prevents the formation of rain clouds.

The condition is expected to diminish this morning.
