13/10/2020

The arrival of several tropical waves in Mexico, in addition to the possible arrival of a new frontal system, will continue to generate rainfall in various states, in addition to the fact that storms accompanied by strong winds and possible hailstorms are not ruled out. Similarly, in some states, the heat will be intense.

The meteorological predictions indicate that the tropical wave number 40 will be crossing in the next hours the states of the south, east, center, and west of the national territory; a condition that will be favoring unstable time and the probability of rains. In the same way, it is predicted that at midweek another tropical wave will arrive in Mexico, and one more will arrive at the weekend.

On the other hand, instability in higher levels of the troposphere will be located over the center of Mexico, a condition that would bring cold air advection and divergence in height, key factors for the formation of hail, and strong storms possibly accompanied by tornadoes. It is also expected that by Thursday or this Friday at the latest, a new cold front will arrive in Mexico, prolonging the potential for rains.

Consequently, for the next 72 hours, very heavy rains (50 to 75 mm per day) are expected in Chiapas, Oaxaca, Tabasco, and Veracruz, as well as heavy rains (25 to 50 mm per day) in Guerrero, Durango, Quintana Roo, Yucatan, Campeche, and Tamaulipas. In the rest of the country, rainfall would be light to moderate (up to 25 mm per day) and more dispersed.

For this week, extremely hot temperatures are being presented in the northwestern states of the country, specifically Baja California and Sonora, where the column of mercury would be reaching maximums of between 40 ° C and 45 ° C. Similarly, temperatures are expected to be between 35 ° C and 40 ° C in Yucatan, Campeche, Quintana Roo, Sinaloa and Tabasco.

The most significant winds for this week will be presented from this Thursday in the states of Sinaloa, Nuevo Leon, and Tamaulipas with maximum speeds of up to 60 km / h or more. This is due to the arrival of a new cold front. This frontal system will also propitiate the "North" event with winds of up to 70 km/h for Friday on the coasts of Veracruz and Tamaulipas, a condition that could extend to the Yucatan peninsula for Saturday and Sunday, although of lesser intensity.
