Another “summer-flavored” Christmas is expected in Yucatán. The presence of anticyclonic systems prevent the arrival of cold fronts to the area.

On those days the presence of fog banks is also expected in some areas of Mérida and the state, so caution must be exercised, mainly in the mornings.
“Most of the long-term models indicate that Christmas Eve will have a summer flavor: in the daytime, a hot atmosphere is expected and at the end of the night and in the early morning, cool weather will predominate. The presence of some drizzles and rains in the afternoon is also expected ”, he reported.
