Costa Rican residents should cherish Tuesday because another cold front is coming that will bring more rain and wind.
The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional said that much of the soil in the Caribbean coast is saturated by the previous 10 days of rain brought by an earlier cold front. So the region is vulnerable.
The Comisión Nacional de Prevención de Riesgos y Atención de Emergencias declared an alert for the region.
The weather institute is predicting rain of variable intensity this morning mainly in the mountains. Emergency workers on the coast will be keeping an eye on the rivers. There was some damage last week from rivers flowing out of their banks, said the emergency commission.
The Central Valley will see more of the cold weather that caused residents to break out the winter clothing last week. There also is a prediction of more wind.
By contrast, Tuesday was a sunny day with moderate temperatures and puffy white clouds.
