During the last three weeks of the winter season, high temperatures are registered in Yucatan, which apparently predicts the heat that could overwhelm the state during the spring and summer, considering the current warm weather.
According to CONAGUA Yucatán, some parts of the state are already registering maximum temperatures of 33 to 37 degrees Celsius, and higher figures are expected for this month.
On Monday Feb. 26, the highest temperature was recorded in Mocochá with 37 degrees Celsius, around 4 o’clock in the afternoon. In the Yucatecan capital, the thermometer reached 35.7 degrees. Other communities where the heat was also felt are Chocholá and Valladolid, with 36 and 35.3 degrees, respectively.
CONAGUA specialists foresee 2018 as what could be one of the hottest years ever recorded for the state of Yucatan and the rest of the Peninsula.
Taking into consideration that the world in 2017 saw some of the highest average surface temperatures ever recorded in history worldwide (in fact 2017 was one of the hottest three years ever recorded), scientists all over the world are warning that the ‘climate tide is rising fast’ and 2018 could break all records.
