More rain is predicted for this afternoon after many in the Central Valley got a break Monday.
Despite cloudy and threatening skies, the usual afternoon downpours did not develop.
Today the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional says that on the Pacific coast in the Central Valley and in the nation’s mountains afternoon rain is likely.
The rain likely will be accompanied by wind gusts, the forecast said. The northern zone and the Caribbean will get the same in the coastal mountains, said the institute.
The instability in the atmosphere is due to a low pressure system that moved north from the Gulf of Panamá. The weather agency has been warnings about slides and flooding.
