A new frontal system will favor potential rain and thunderstorms in the southeast region of the country, and a new "northern" event is expected in the Gulf of Mexico. The northern states will experience temperatures that will fall below the freezing point.

The cold front number 25 is currently located over the northern states of the Mexican Republic and is expected to enter the Gulf of Mexico early this Thursday, generating a strong "north" event with maximum winds that could reach up to 80 km / h in coastal areas of Tamaulipas and Veracruz. The swell would be reaching heights of between 3 and 4 meters in those same regions.

The effects of "north" will extend to the Yucatan Peninsula from Friday, although with less intensity, as it is estimated that the anemometers record up to 50 km / h and the waves reach maximum heights of between 2 and 3 meters. In the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, the wind speed could exceed 80 km/h.

In the same way, this frontal system will give rise to heavy rains (25 to 50 mm per day) in the states of Veracruz, Tabasco, Chiapas, and Oaxaca, likewise, moderate rains are predicted (5 to 25 mm per day) in Yucatan, Campeche, Quintana Roo, Tamaulipas and Puebla. The rains could be accompanied by electrical activity and wind gusts. In the rest of the country, the potential for rain will be low.

Freezing temperatures in the north of the country

The cold air mass that gives impulse to the mentioned frontal system, will favor minimum temperatures between -5°C and 0°C, without discarding lower values in the states of Chihuahua, Durango, Sonora, and Coahuila. Likewise, minimum temperatures of between 0°C and 5°C are predicted, without discarding lower values in Baja California, Nuevo Leon, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosi, Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, State of Mexico, Tlaxcala, Puebla, and Hidalgo.

Another cold front would be arriving in Mexico this weekend, which will prolong the winter conditions that prevail in the country.
