HAVANA TIMES – Cloudy skies will predominate from the morning on, with rain and some thunderstorms in the capital. Winds will be from southeast to the east, with speeds below 30 km/h.

The maximum temperatures will range between 29 and 30° C (84 and 86 F), while the lows will be between 23 and 24° C (73 and 75 F). The sea surface temperature will be 27° C (81 F).

Meteorological conditions

A center of low pressure extends over the northeast of the Gulf of Mexico, generating a wide area of convective clouds and rains that is affecting all of western Cuba. In the heights, a high moisture content predominates over the eastern Gulf of Mexico, which together with a high level trough is contributing to the convection associated with the low surface. As the low moves to the north, a weak influence of the high surface pressures will prevail over the weekend, but due to the high humidity the probability of rainfall will remain high.
