Riviera Maya, Q.R. — A drop in temperatures is forecast for the entire Yucatan Peninsula with the arrival of cold front no. 8. Mexico’s Servicio Meteorológico Nacional (SMN) says the cold front will begin affecting the peninsula Sunday as it enters the region.
They say the mass of U.S. cold air will cross the northeast, east and southeast of Mexico causing very strong thunderstorms on Sunday. The cold air mass associated with the front will also generate a noticeable decrease in temperatures.
The SMN reports that a low pressure channel in interaction with the entry of humidity from the Gulf of Mexico will cause heavy rains and occasional showers in Tabasco, Chiapas, Veracruz, Campeche and Quintana Roo.
The cold air mass associated with the front will keep the environment very cold in the morning and night, with frosts at dawn in areas of the north, center, east and southeast of Mexico, as well as fog banks in the center, east and southeast of Mexico.
The mass of cold air, which is arriving from the U.S., will blanket a major portion of the region for at least three days.
