The weather experts predict that today will be a windy one.
The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional issued a bulletin Thursday afternoon warning that atmospheric pressure in the north Caribbean would increase the velocity of winds here considerably.
The Caribbean coast and the northern zone are expected to see an increase in rain.
The winds in the Central Valley and the Pacific coast are expected to be in the 30- to 40-kph range with gusts up to 90 kph or about 56 mph.
The country usually sees winds after the end of the rainy season.
The weather institute warned of falling trees and damaged electrical lines, the usual result of such winds. It also said that the Central Valley might see some rain and that persons in the Río Sarapiquí watershed should keep an eye on the river.
