Rain this week
By Yanet Diaz
HAVANA TIMES – During this week the intense heat is expected to continue, with a weak flow from the east and some rains caused by daytime instability and the passage of waves from the east through the Caribbean Sea, which will be transporting humidity and convective clouds towards the northwestern part of the island. Additionally, a low-level trough located over the Straits of Florida could also encourage rain processes over Havana.
The days will be warm and sunny from the morning, in the afternoons the cloudiness will gradually increase, and isolated showers and thunderstorms may occur in Havana. We will have a very high humidity, peaking at 95 and 97%. The winds will be variable and weak in the mornings, and in the afternoons, they will be from the east with speeds between 15 and 25 km/h. The high temperatures will be at 32 and 33°C (90 and 91 F), while the lows will remain at 23 and 24°C (73 and 75 F). The sea surface temperature will be 29°C (84 F).
Over the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean no tropical cyclone formation is expected for the next 5 days.
