Additionally, the decrease in rainfall will have negative effects on agricultural production, and the effect of drought will greatly impact the Central Valley and the Northern Pacific and on a smaller scale, the Central Pacific, North and South Pacific.
The typical periods of dryness in Costa Rica are normal and referred to historically as the;
- “Veranillos de San Juan” (June)
- “Canícula” (July)
- “Canícula” (August)
For centuries, farmers have relied on these climatic dry periods in the weather, to harvest and re-plant their crops.The IMN stated that their projections should be anticipated, but there is no way to know what type of impact they will actually have in Costa Rica.
