Low pressure brings a return to cloudy, rainy weather

Unstable weather remains over Costa Rica as a low pressure area slowly moves across the country.

The forecast is for rain today on the Pacific coast all day with possible showers in the Central Valley. Conditions in the northern zone and on the Caribbean coast show improvement, said the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional.

The weather institute issued an alert early Monday when
the low pressure system was over Panamá and was moving north in the province of Limón.

The weather institute warned of possible slides and rising streams if the rains are hard.

In Santa Rita de San Carlos, a 76-year-old man died Sunday when he fell from a mamón chino tree where he was gathering the fruit.

The accident may have been weather-related.
