Autumn is proving to be hot, though the weather could start to change soon
Autumn in Yucatán began hot, with temperatures at noon and early afternoon of 35 to 37 degrees and with a thermal sensation that is around 40 degrees, warns Juan Vázquez Montalvo, of the Interinstitutional Committee for the Attention of Extreme Meteorological Phenomena (Ciafeme) of Uady.
The meteorologist points out that in addition the wind blows very calmly and that encourages the Yucatecans to “sweat profusely and suffocate.”
“No liquid is sufficient to mitigatear thirst, the sun burns and the air conditioners and fans are at all they give, “he added.
What is the cause of this hot autumn?
Vázquez Montalvo pointed out that autumn 2021 is very different from those of years for the following reasons:
“The dry air with less moisture content dominates the area and Julian Madden Swing, with its descending air, prevents precipitation and dries tropical waves “.

“In addition, it imposes zones of calm that prevent the wind from blowing and especially the possible formation of tropical cyclones “.
It should be noted that the Madden Julian oscillation is a wave or zone of low pressures that travels the world in a period of 30 to 60 days.
What does it take to change the climate in Yucatan?
“Definitely the arrival of a cold front is needed or a change in the behavior of the Julian Madden Oscillation “.
“The first thing could start to happen … Next Saturday a cold front will approach“he continued.
Although the cold front will not reach us, “it will have to destabilize the atmosphere and cause rain on Saturday and Sunday.”
As for the change in the Madden Julian oscillation, he specified that it will take place at the end of October.
Calling the Yucatecans to take care of the heat
Vázquez Montalbo called on the Yucatecans that while they take care of the heat “as if it were the dry season.”
“Heatstroke could occur, so to hydrate and protect yourself from the sun, “he stressed.
“It is very important to use an umbrella, hat or cap and sunscreen, as well as wearing light clothes,” he concluded.
