LATE MAY - MID SEPTEMBER. COSTA RICA: CLIMATE

I would like to add to the information on Central America's western coast and the central valley of Costa Rica. Exceptionally dry weather for what is normally out wet or rainy season. Running from mid May through mid December (usually). This year we have gotten much less rain than usual. On the eastern slopes, there has been flooding and much heavier rain than usual. I returned from the coast yesterday where the locals have commented on much higher temperatures than normal (and very rough seas - probably due to Typhoon Linda at the time).--Marcos Bogan-Miller <mbogan@sol.racsa.co.cr>
