On the Caribbean side and the northern zone, there are reports of intermittent rain.

The IMN says this is cold front 22 of the season.

The temperature in Greater metropolitan Area of San Jose has been some 3 degrees Celsius or lower than normal seasonal temperatures, dipping to around 15 Celsius at night, even cooler in higher elevations like Moravia.

It wasn’t uncommon to see people wearing overcoats, I mean winter jackets and not just sweaters on Saturday morning in the area of La Sabana.
