Santa Gertrudis is a small town belonging to the municipality of Badiraguato, Sinaloa, and located in the mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental, it is the only town in the state that has frequent snowfalls in winter, this is due to the fact that it is located at an altitude of 2100 meters above sea level in one of the most inaccessible areas, very close to the vertex of the limits of this state with those of Chihuahua and Durango, which together form the so-called Golden Triangle.

In various images sent to Línea Directa, the vegetation, homes, cabins and the entire landscape can be seen with the typical winter beauty that, on this occasion, is driven by the passage of the fifth winter storm of the season and cold front number 28. 

Sinaloa struggles most of the year, between very high temperatures, but also between very cold in its mountains, due to the adjoining states such as Sonora, Chihuahua, and Durango, the coldest in the entire country.

For today in Badiraguato, where Santa Gertrudis is located, temperatures will prevail from 10 degrees the minimum to 24 the maximum, with cloudy skies and chances of rain, mostly at night.
