Riviera Maya, Q.R. — The cool nights being felt in the Cancun, Riviera Maya region are expected to continue due to a mass of U.S. cold air. Mexico’s Servicio Meteorológico Nacional (SMN), the country’s national weather organization, reports a gradual rise in temperatures as the system passes over the eastern portion of the country.
However, low pressure channels on the east, south and southeast of Mexico, in interaction with the entry of humidity from the Gulf of Mexico, are expected to generate rains later this week.
SMN reports frost in the mountainous areas of Chihuahua, Durango, State of Mexico, Tlaxcala and Puebla. For the Yucatan Peninsula, the cold front will continue to see both day and nighttime temperatures below normal until cold front no. 7 leaves the area.
However, the SMN says a new cold front will approach and enter the north of the country on Wednesday. For Thursday and Friday, the frontal system will run through the northeast and eastern portion of the territory causing heavy rains.
The cold air mass that drives it will generate strong gusts of wind and a drop in temperatures in the north and northeast of the country. Quintana Roo is forecast to maintain maximum daytime temperatures of around 30C or 86F.
