How is the weather in Mazatlan

Mazatlan, located in Sinaloa, is a municipality that enjoys a dry-rainy semi-humid tropical climate, which is also marked by a dry season.
The annual average temperature for this region is 26 degrees, although it is common for humidity in the summer to cause a feeling of embarrassment. The weather is warm from December to February and there is rainfall between the months of July and October, although during this period the thermometers may reach 35 degrees.
From time to time, between the months of June to November, Mazatlan could be affected by the storm and hurricane season, although these affect more to the west of the California peninsula. Only three times has the city been hit by these phenomena: in 1943; in 1957 and in 1975.
Where is the best weather in Mexico
In Mexico, up to seven types of climate are identified. (Photo: File)
Mexico is a favored country, since its geographical position (its exit to the Caribbean Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the division made by the Tropic of Cancer) makes it a mega-diverse region, being home to at least 12% of the species of the world, being 12 thousand of them endemic.
Although the Tropic of Cancer divides the country into two climatic zones – one temperate and the other tropical – the truth is that the altitude, latitude and distribution of land and water mean that up to seven types of climate can be identified in the national territory : warm sub-humid, dry, semi-dry, dry desert, warm humid, temperate sub-humid, temperate humid and cold.
In this context, it is not surprising that in the highlands of Chihuahua the thermometer reaches -30 degrees, while in the Mexicali desert, the same as in the north of the country, it rises to 50 degrees Celsius.
According to the National Meteorological Service, the average annual temperature in the country is 19 degrees, however, there are cities such as Mexicali, Culiacán, Ciudad Juárez, Hermosillo, Torreón, Saltillo and Monterrey where temperatures are extremely high.
As proof of this is San Luis Río Colorado, a city located in Sonora that is located on the limits of the Great Altar Desert of Baja California and the state of Arizona and that is well known for having the record for the highest temperature recorded in the country, after the July 6, 1966 thermometer rose to mark 58.5 degrees Celsius.
In contrast, the lowest temperature recorded in history was that of December 27, 1997, when the thermometer dropped to -25 degrees in the Chihuahuan municipality of Madero.
However, this variety of climates have been affected in recent years by global warming and experts foresee a discouraging future for the country with a considerable reduction in annual rainfall and a considerable increase in temperatures.
The ravages have already begun to affect farmers and ranchers due to droughts or severe floods, while in times of heat there has been an increase in the number of environmental contingencies in the main cities, as is the case of the Mexican capital.
