Blue skies, high temperatures expected for Semana Santa

March 21, 2013

National Meteorological Institute (IMN) forecasts released Thursday predict temperatures in the Central Valley will hover around 31 degrees Celsius (88 F) for Semana Santa, next week.

The IMN said beachgoers can expect clear, blue skies in coastal areas, and temperatures could reach up to 36 C (97 F) along Pacific shores. Temperatures at Caribbean beaches could reach 33 C (91 F), making for a hot week for vacationers.

Although the temperatures are high, they will not surpass those registered during the same period last year, meteorologists said.

The IMN also said that high temperatures will continue through April and could even increase, because the sun’s heat will be more direct over the country. Officials caution residents to avoid excessive exposure to direct sunlight.

A slight chance of occasional showers in mountainous regions is forecast, the IMN added.
