For today, a low-pressure channel over the western Gulf of Mexico, in interaction with the inlet of moisture along the coast, will cause rains in the east and southeast of the Mexican Republic, with mists in high areas and north-component wind in the Isthmus and Gulf of Tehuantepec.
The subtropical jet stream will maintain moisture drag inland, favoring the likelihood of showers and electric shocks over the west, central and south of the country. Finally, front No. 28 over northeastern Mexico, will produce winds with gusts of 50 km/h in Coahuila and Nuevo León, said front will decrease its effects in the country, due to its dissipation process over the course of the day.
