Minimum temperatures will be between 8 and 15 degrees, and maximum temperatures will be between 22 and 26 degrees, with cool to cold winds from the north and northeast.

Atypical event
Since 2015 and further back, in 2012 and 1999, there has not been an event of long duration of cold for Yucatan in January. Authorities call to take precautions since many people in the entity are not used to long events of the cold environment. At the same time, there are houses made to withstand heat and not cold for a long time, especially in the municipalities. It is wet cold, so the body sensation is 2.5 degrees below what a meteorological instrument marks.
