HAVANA TIMES – This week we will have warm days in Havana, with scattered showers in the afternoon due to the afternoon convection. Chance of rain will increase slightly with the approach of Tropical Storm Matthew, which may also bring some thunderstorms.

The winds will be from the east, turning northeast and north starting Sunday, with speeds between 10 and 20 km/h. Maximum temperatures will be between 31 and 33° C (88 and 91 F) and minimum range between 23 and 24° C (73 and 75 F). The sea surface temperature is 30° C (86 F).

Meteorological conditions:

At noon on Thursday, the center of Matthew was estimated at 14.2 degrees north latitude and 66.5 degrees west longitude, position that places it about 469 kilometers south of San Juan, Puerto Rico. This system continues moving west decreasing its speed up to 24 kilometers per hour, reports the Meteorological Center of Cuba, INSMET.

The basins of the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico have a deep layer of abundant moisture, which is favorable for the development of convection and rainfall.
