Dry season could be hottest this century

Experts are predicting a scorching dry season, which intensifies during March and April and reaches its peak during May and early June.

University of Guadalajara (UdG) investigator Valentina Davydova Belitskaya is not ruling out the possibility that 2020 will be one of the hottest springs seen so far this century.

Temperatures will be “higher than normal,” she says, adding that there is little chance of much rain during the spring months. March, in particular, is unlikely to see any precipitation, she says.

Inhabitants of Jalisco can expect oscillations in temperature of between two and five degrees Celsius higher than the seasonal average, according to Davydova. The maximum temperature in March should be around 36 degrees Celsius.

Davydova says temperatures in Guadalajara will be higher than in outlying areas since the metropolitan area has its own micro-climate, caused principally by the predominance of concrete structures and absence of green spaces.
