The Regional Port Authority decreed the closure of minor navigation due to the arrival of bad weather generated by cold front number 21.
MÉRIDA, Yucatán.- This will be the coldest week of the 2021-2022 winter season due to the arrival of cold front number 21 and a polar air mass that will reinforce it in the middle of the week, causing minimum temperatures to drop significantly throughout the state, informed Juan Vázquez Montalvo, a meteorologist at the Autonomous University of Yucatán (UADY).
He specified that since yesterday some drizzle and light rains of short duration and without important accumulations were registered in different areas of the city and the State, which will continue today and are associated with a pre-frontal trough.
He indicated that around midday or in the afternoon the cold front will enter whose air mass will be reinforced starting tomorrow and whose effects will be felt until next Sunday.
“Once the cold front reaches the Yucatán Peninsula it will station itself in the north and there it will stay for several days until Friday,” he indicated.
“The air mass that makes up the front will be gradually reinforced starting tomorrow by another similar one that will be moving from the north and will cause minimum temperatures to drop significantly to such an extent that the lowest temperatures are expected on Thursday and Friday,” he explained.
He detailed that for today and tomorrow maximum temperatures in Merida and the interior of the State are expected to be between 29 and 31 degrees Celsius.
For its part, the Regional Port Authority decreed last night the closure of minor navigation in all ports of the Yucatan coast, due to the arrival of bad weather. The entrance of the storm to the coasts of the State directly stopped the fishing activity, in what is considered the last weeks of the grouper catching season in the region, in such a way that the coastal vessels could not go out to sea, while the larger fleet, in some cases, took their reserves and did not venture out to fish either.
