    According to experts, for the month of July, the influence of the El Niño phenomenon will begin to be felt in Costa Rica. And due to this climatic phenomenon, a drought is expected for approximately a year and a half.

    What does it generate?

    • Decrease in the formation of Tropical Cyclones
    • High temperaturas
    • Rainfall deficit in the Pacific and Central Valley
    • Excess rainfall on the Caribbean slope

    Rather beneficial

It caused great damage to the agricultural and livestock sector on the Pacific slope.

    Meanwhile, in 2019, it caused a decrease of up to 55% in rainfall throughout the country. The North and South Caribbean, presented a deficit of 75%.”Although the percentage of having this phenomenon is very high, in July it will be analyzed again, because it has also happened that the formation is expected and it does not happen,” the IMN clarified.


    On the other hand, experts foresee that the conditions in the country will continue to be hot, mainly in sectors near the coast and lowlands.“Maximum temperatures will be around between 32°C and 38°C this Thursday, due to little cloudiness and humidity from the maritime sectors. For the Central Valley, the maximum temperatures will be between 25°C and 30°C,” they reported.

    While the rains are only expected in the mountains of the Central and South Pacific during the afternoon. At night, partial cloudiness will predominate, without significant rain.
