Weather question

Hi all,

My husband and I are flying to Cancun staying at the Beloved hotel in Playa Mujeres January 3rd. I looked at the weather and it looks like a week of rain. Are the weather forecasts pretty accurate?

Thanks for any help.

Nope

But if you see the temps dip, then a norte (north / cold front) may be on the way from Texas, which brings unorganized weather

We're in Cancun now and have been for the last 5 days. I was so worried before we came seeing the forecast looking like rain all week. Couldn't be further from the truth. We've had beautiful weather every day with some showers overnight. Don't worry about the weather, you'll be enjoying sunshine and plenty of it.

I just looked at the weather and was wondering the same thing. Thank you for the reassuring words! Headed to EPM January 1!

It has been raining all day over here. The forecasts are right. There is a Norte arriving also in the next few days. Those fronts bring wind and rain to the region.

How long should the Norte be there?

Nortes last a few days

Look for the temperatures to rise and wind fall

Dan_Kom the forecasts are not right. Before I came the forecast was for rain all day every day. At least that is what it appeared to be. Of the 6 days we are here, only one day had rain on and off most of the day. Every other day has been nice.

Don't like the forecast ? try another one...

But, there is a cold front sweeping thru the midwest of the US..It affects the weather to the south of the US..

Terms we don't like to hear, here in the midwest..

Arctic cold front..
