Four of Mexico’s states woke to sleet and snow after a dip to sub-zero temperatures

Mexico — Four of Mexico’s states woke up Thursday morning to sleet, while others had snow. On Wednesday night, the federal weather station, Comisión Nacional de Agua (Conagua), has warned residents of -5 to -10 C temperatures.

Conagua forecast the chilly weather for residents in the mountain areas of Baja California, Chihuahua, Durango and Sonora, which they added, would be accompanied by winds of 50 to 70 km/ h.

The wet, cold weather was the result of a subtropical jet stream interacting with a polar trough in the western United States, according to a statement from Conagua.

On Thursday morning, near-zero temperatures were also forecast for mountain regions in the State of Mexico, Guanajuato, Hidalgo, Jalisco, Michoacán, Oaxaca, Puebla, Tlaxcala, Veracruz and Zacatecas.
