Cancun, Q.R. – Forecasts from the National Weather Service for the Yucatan region show a continuation of heat for Cancun and the entire Riviera Maya.
The high temperatures that have plagued much of the region for the month of May are expected to stick around for at least a few more days.
Daytime temperatures in the low to mid-30s (Celsius) combined with high humidity have left local residents baking. Based on the assessment of meteorological information the continuation of a low pressure channel located on the southern portion of the Gulf of Mexico will see hot temperatures stay.
Tropical maritime air is driving moderate amounts of moisture from the Caribbean Sea to the Yucatan Peninsula, causing hot weather, cloudiness and eventual rains into the state of Quintana Roo.
A tropical wave arriving from Guatemala is slowly making its way west / northwest up the peninsula, causing cloudiness and isolated showers with no favorable conditions for a tropical storm.
The coastal portions of the state of Quintana Roo will likely see isolated rain activity over the next few days, particularly into the weekend. Daytime air temperatures will average between 34C to 36C (93F to 97F) with minimum temperatures hovering between 24C and 26C (75F and 79F).
Today, daytime thermal sensations will feel like 39 degrees Celsius (102 F).
