Cold front number 24 In the next few days, expansion will take place in the north of the republic, for which the National Water Commission (with water) predicted a colder climate, as well as wind and rain Starting this Monday, January 16th. However, this phenomenon will also be associated with a polar wander And a polar jet stream. We explain what they are and how they will affect temperatures in Mexico.
“will be generated by the conditions described cold front number 24 It will extend in consonance with the one in the north of the Mexican Republic. low-pressure channel and due to a new cold front which will be connected to the one in the northwest of the country polar wander and with polar jet streamConagua explained on his website.
What is polar trough?
a polar wander is infiltrated cold arctic air so it always makes temperature drop, accurate site network weather, While Spain’s state meteorological agency says that a trough It is a region of the atmosphere in which the pressure is low with respect to the surrounding regions at the same level.
What is the polar jet stream?
polar jet According to it, it is a stream of very strong winds that circulate in the upper part of the atmosphere. Meteorite,
“Sometimes, like a fast-moving river, the motion of the jet stream is very straight and smooth, but sometimes it twists and bends, like a riverbank, slowing down, allowing low-pressure areas to subside.” move in a predictable manner”, explains World Meteorological Information Expert Page.
And he says that: ” jet stream It can also change the intensity of the low-pressure area. It acts like a vacuum cleaner, sucking in air from above and making it more intense: it lowers the pressure or condenses the system. The lower the pressure within a system, the stronger winds and storms generally result.
