Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Temperatures for the state of Quintana Roo are expected to take a temporary dip with the arrival of a U.S. cold front. The Servicio Meteorológico Nacional (SMN) reports Cold Front No. 6 will reach the coastal area of the state Thursday evening.

The SMN reports the mass of cold air will generate wind and rain for the Yucatan Peninsula. On Thursday evening and into Friday, intervals of rain that may become intense is expected for the Cancun, Riviera Maya region.

According to the SMN, on Friday, Cold Front No. 6 will continue to spread over southeastern Mexico, causing showers and heavy rains in the east, center, south and southeast of the country with strong occasional rains in Chiapas and Oaxaca.

The cold associated with the front will maintain a cold to cool environment during the morning with the probability of frost in the elevated areas of the north, northeast, east and center of the country.

Strong wind gusts are likely in the Isthmus and Gulf of Tehuantepec. On Saturday, the front will extend as stationary over the Gulf of Mexico, while on Sunday, it will acquire warm characteristics, diminishing its effects.
