Cancun, Riviera Maya brace for another cold front

Cancun, Riviera Maya — After rebounding from a recent forceful cold front, a majority of the state of Quintana Roo is bracing for another that is expected to enter the region Wednesday.

The National Meteorological Service says that the arrival of a new cold front, number 32, will begin to take effect on Wednesday, and although this cold front will be weak, it will still bring very cool day and nighttime temperatures to the Cancun, Riviera Maya region.

They report that the cold front, which is located over the northern portion of Mexico and southern United States, is moving east-southeast causing low temperatures, brisk wind and clouds and rains over the area of influence.

The cold front will gradually reach the Yucatan Peninsula and the state of Quintana Roo during the course of Wednesday, January 30.

The general director of the State Coordination of Civil Protection, Adrián Martínez Ortega says that due to the expected drop in temperature, citizens, especially those in the rural communities, are asked to take precautions.

This cold front will again, extend to other regions of the Yucatan including Merida. According to Centro Hidrometeorológico Regional de Mérida, the city is expecting temperatures to drop to between 7 C and 11 C degrees for nighttime, while in Quintana Roo, nighttime temperatures are anticipated to drop to between 13 C to 17 C degrees with daytime temperatures rebounding to 27 C.

Cold Front No. 32 will arrive only days after the region was ravaged by Cold Front No. 31 that left poles and trees downed as well as one dead.
