Mexico Issues Heatwave Warning for CDMX, Riviera Maya, and Other Areas

Mexico City Conagua has issued a weather warning for CDMX due to the high temperatures expected in the capital this Saturday, March 9, as well as due to the low morning temperatures.

In this regard, according to the National Meteorological Service (SMN), the probability of rain in Mexico City is null during the day and 1% throughout the night.

The temperature is forecasted to reach a maximum of 30 degrees and a minimum of 9 degrees in this region. The ultraviolet rays are expected to reach a level of up to 10.
