Cold front on the weekend
By Yanet Díaz
HAVANA TIMES – The arrival of a cold front this weekend will cause showers and rain in the capital, with moderate to strong winds from the north, with speeds between 25 and 30 km/h, which will cause waves along the coastal areas.
The maximum temperatures during this 7-day forecast period will be ranging between 24 and 30° C (75 and 86 F), while the lows will be between 20 and 21° C (68 and 70 F). The sea surface temperature will be 26° C (79 F).
Over Cuba and adjacent seas, the oceanic anticyclonic influence predominates, with light winds from the southeast, isolated clouds and good weather conditions in general through Friday afternoon.
A front located in the Gulf of Mexico will be moving towards the southeast, arriving on Saturday morning to the western coasts of Cuba. The proximity of the front will cause strong winds from the north, as well as showers and rains associated with the prefrontal storm line. When the front passes anticyclonic conditions will again be imposed, with a low probability of rain and easterly winds, accompanied by a drop in temperatures.
