In 2040, the Costa Rica climate will change and cause that this beautiful land will have two summers and two winters, and also increase the risk of floods and droughts in various parts of the country. The National Meteorological Institute (IMN) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) warned with a study presented yesterday.

According to research, the Costa Rica weather in that year would begin with a dry season between January and April, follow with a short rainy season in May, after the novelty would have a second summer between June and August, and end with scattered from September.

"We are giving the Costa Rican society a number of tools for planning for adaptation to climate change, and this is the right time," said Juan Carlos Fallas, director of IMN.

The report also notes that the Costa Rican coast will be subjected to extreme weather during that year and urged to take action to address any lack of water in counties like San Jose and Parrita; where now you can take great cheap costa rica tours, who know in the future.

This situation occurred due to variations in rainfall patterns and increased temperatures, which cause a decrease in rainfall between June and August.

The researchers reached that conclusion after analyzing the trend in the country's historical records, and simulations of 20 global models using different scenarios of carbon emissions, which cause climate change.

"The intensification of the trade winds during June-August quarter explains the increase of precipitation in the Caribbean and the decrease in the Pacific.

"The winds blow from the north-northeast, leaving the moisture in the Cordillera de Talamanca and Central Volcanic. The dry wind passed into the Pacific, preventing the intrusion of moist winds from the southwest", says the study.

My advice to you now is to visit the beach hotels in costa rica, they are phenomenal at this of the year. The Country is doing everything to prevent Global Warming to change the ecosystem of Central America.
