For today and tomorrow, the Day of Love and Friendship, a hot environment is expected to prevail, with a cloudy sky and potential for rain, reported meteorologist Juan Vázquez Montalvo, from the Autonomous University of Yucatán.
These rains will be practically between moderate and strong. Very specific accumulations of 40 to 60 liters per square meter are expected in some areas.
It is also possible that storms accompanied by a high electrical load and wind gusts of up to 40 to 50 kilometers per hour may occur, added the specialist who is a member of the Institutional Committee for the Attention of Extreme Meteorological Phenomena of Uady.
The maximum temperatures will oscillate between 29 and 33 degrees, and the minimum between 19 and 21 degrees. The dominant wind will be from the south and southeast.
The rains will be mainly present throughout the state today, with less potential Sunday although there will be rain, he said. These precipitations would be registered from noon, in the afternoon and even at night in some areas.
In short, these days will be hot and rainy; therefore, there would be “hot weather” during the day.
You will feel the normal seasonal cool due to the rains that will be falling and this will be felt at night, at dawn there may be banks of mist when it is not very condensed and fog when it is not very strong, he explained.
According to the meteorologist, these rains are due to the indirect effects of cold front number 35 that will not arrive, but will destabilize the entire area.
Hot conditions would continue on Monday, with rains and winds from the south and southeast.
Another cold front
Vázquez Montalvo explained that on Tuesday this will change with the arrival of the next cold front in the area. It will be of short duration and moderate, it will only cause cooling of the temperatures that will be between 25 and 27 degrees. In addition, it will cause rain and the wind will be from the north and northeast.
This system would be registered only on Tuesday.
According to the specialist, this cold front would be 36 or 35 reinforced, depending on how Conagua handles it. On Wednesday the heat will return.
A new cold front is expected to arrive in the area on Friday 19. This one will last until Sunday and will come stronger. This would cause a drop in temperatures and rain on Thursday afternoon or night, when it arrives.
The next Saturday and Sunday a somewhat hot to cool environment is anticipated during the day and the early mornings will be cold, with winds from the north and northeast.
When referring to sudden changes in temperature such as the heat of these days in the middle of winter, the specialist explained that this is called “crazy February and a little March”.
When February arrives, contrary to what they had said would be a very cold month, it is generally a month in which the intense part of the cold fronts ends and that was last day 10, which means a greater number of frontal systems in less time and very intense.
This part ends, but continues the winter season that will last until the beginning of spring, on March 21.
February is a month of transition, where as soon as there are no cold fronts affecting – whether weak, moderate or strong – a heat wave like the one we have now will enter, he commented. Then cold fronts are combined with a lot of heat, clear skies with cloudy skies with rain; winds from the north with winds from the south and southeast, depending on what is presented.— CLAUDIA SIERRA MEDINA
They are really sudden changes in weather conditions that affect the health of the Yucatecans. This year we have a very active winter season, with the presence of cold fronts.
Last year and others the hot weather dominated more, there were very few cold fronts, then there was no room for that.
More of the forecasts shared by the meteorologist Juan Vázquez Montalvo.
This year, having dominated the cold fronts, logically the heat enters as spring approaches and there are two phases: at times it is cold, in others it is hot and in others it is very cold, such as the next end of week; at other times there will be a lot of heat as long as there are no cold fronts and that is called “crazy February and a little March”.
Another month of changes
While March 21 arrives with spring, that pattern continues, although hot environments are dominating, added the specialist.
