The weather this week will be changeable, and clouds are already rolling in.
This is actually typical of February in Yucatán. A new cold front has started to enter the area, and will generate scattered storms and a moderate “norte” event with maximum winds up to 55 kilometers per hour / 35 miles per hour, warns meteorologist Juan Antonio Palma Solís at Meteored.mx.
Temperatures will lower gradually to around 15 C / 59 F.
By the middle of the week, winds will change to the south-southeast, for a “surada” event with high winds and a rapid rise in temperatures. Highs could reach 35 C / 95 F.
Then on Thursday, another cold front will arrive with much more force than the previous one. Rains will return with winds up to 70 kph / 44 mph.
Such a dramatic change in temperatures could be dangerous to people with poor respiratory systems, said Palma. Nighttime lows could reach 10 C / 50 F in central and southern Yucatán, eastern Campeche and western Quintana Roo.
