Cancun, Riviera Maya weather to remain wet and windy

Last updated on October 11, 2018

Cancun, Q.R. — While Tropical Storm Bud drenches the Pacific coastline, a slow moving tropical disturbance has been doing the same to the Cancun, Riviera Maya coast.

The National Meteorological Service reports there are five tropical systems that are causing intense rains around the country, with Tropical Storm Bud causing the most damage along the Baja California Sur region.


As Tropical Wave No. 3 continues its movement, the southeast portion of Mexico will remain wet and windy for another 48 hours. As the Tropical Wave continues on the Yucatan Peninsula, it is interacting with a weak Low Pressure Channel.

Both systems continue to move slowly to the west-northwest causing rain and thunderstorms over most of the state of Quintana Roo.

The National Meteorological Service is forecasting the Cancun, Riviera Maya region to remain wet with the additional accumulation of between 75 and 150 mm of rain for Yucatan and Quintana Roo as very strong storms and intense electrical activity make their way through the region Thursday and Friday.


On Saturday, SMN are forecasting the arrival of a new tropical wave system that will travel across the Yucatan Peninsula and the southeast, continuing Cancun and Riviera Maya’s wet and windy weather.

Rain accumulation for Saturday is anticipated to be between 50 to 75 mm. Variable winds of between 25 and 35 km/h are also expected.

Sunday, the National Meteorological Service reports the likeliness of intervals of rain for the areas of Sinaloa, Yucatan and Quintana Roo.
