Cancun, Riviera Maya may see weather disturbance

Cancun, Q.R. — Weather over the next few days for the Cancun, Riviera Maya region is forecast to remain much the same as the previous week with very hot daytime temperatures, partially cloudy to cloudy skies with possible scattered showers and thunderstorms.

The National Meteorological Service reports a broad low-pressure channel on the western portion of the Yucatan Peninsula that covers Guatemala, Belize, C.A, Peninsula of Yucatán and states of the Southeast of Mexico.

The system has retained an average 50 percent probability of evolving into a tropical storm over the next five days, however, it has a greater probability of development while moving more toward the south of the Gulf of Mexico.

In the coming days, because it will interact with a tropical system that is located on the Caribbean Sea, there is an increasing likelihood of further development.

The NHC said conditions appeared to be favorable for gradual development of the system while it moves slowly northwestward toward the southern Gulf of Mexico early next week. Although formation chances were placed at zero through the next 48 hours, they are 50 percent over the next five days.

The region of the Yucatan Peninsula will continue maintaining very hot temperatures during the day with hot temperatures at night, clouds and showers with isolated showers accompanied by occasional electrical activity in some areas of the State of Quintana Roo.

Maximum daytime temperatures will remain between 35C (95F) and 37C (97F) with nighttime temperatures between 24C (75F) and 26C (79F).
