This October Not So Wet

October 14, 2010


Although October is traditionally the wettest month of the rainy season, this year the water levels have yet to reach those of September and with only two weeks to go it is doubtful that it will.

The forecast of a dry October are by the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional – national weather service – though it rules out that the transition to the dry season has begun, although it may feel like it.

This past week there has been little rain in most parts of the country, certainly nothing like that of past Octobers and less like the past month that caused the road infrastructure to collapse.

IMN’s José Joaquín Agüero explains that the transition to dry season, when it begins, will be first in Guanacaste and then the Central Valley and the rest of the country.

But, having said that, there is a forecast for rain in December in the provinces of San José and Alajuela.
