Brrrr! Cold Front No. 22 keeps many parts of Mexico below zero

Mexico Weather — Frigid below zero temperatures continue to plague many parts of Mexico, while coastal regions experience cold nights, warm days.

The National Meteorological Service (SMN) says that for Monday, a very cold to freezing environment is expected with temperatures of -5 degrees Celsius in mountainous areas of at least 21 states around the country.

The National Meteorological Service reports that very cold to freezing temperatures below -5 C are expected in the mountainous areas of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Durango, Zacatecas, Hidalgo, Estado de México and Tlaxcala.

Areas that can expect temperatures to hover between -5 and 0 C will include higher altitude places around Baja California, Sonora, Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosi, Aguascalientes, Jalisco, Guanajuato, Queretaro, Veracruz, Puebla, Mexico City, Morelos, Michoacan and Oaxaca.

Regions that will experience 0 C to 5 C are the “Chiapas mountains and frosts in the northern, northeastern, eastern and central regions of the Mexican Republic,” said the agency in relation to information from the National Water Commission (Conagua).

They added that the northern air is expected to persist in the Isthmus and the Gulf of Tehuantepec with gusts exceeding 70 km / h, and winds from the south and southeast that could exceed 50 km / h in Coahuila, Nuevo León, Tamaulipas and Veracruz.

On Monday afternoon, a new cold front will enter the north of Mexico and generate heavy rains in Puebla, Veracruz and Oaxaca.

“Showers are expected in the areas of Coahuila, Nuevo León, Tamaulipas, Chiapas and Tabasco and scattered rains in San Luis Potosí, Campeche, Yucatan and Quintana Roo,” they added.

Cold Front No. 22

A weak Anticyclonic System high pressure system is driving modified polar continental air from the Gulf of Mexico toward the Yucatan Peninsula. It will continue moving slowly to the southeast, causing a lowering in the temperatures at night and early morning.

Cool winds from the north with isolated cloud cover and occasional rains over the peninsular region and the State of Quintana Roo are expected for Monday with daytime highs between 27 C and 29 C and nighttime lows of between 11 C and 13 C.
