By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 09 December, 2010

(Chilpancingo, AN 9 December) The Civil Protection Office of the State Public Safety Department has made public that 56 cold fronts are expected during Guerrero’s winter, according to climatologists. Obviously, the cold fronts will most heavily affect the higher regions in the mountains and in the north-central areas of the state, where the mercury is expected to drop below freezing. The twelfth in the series has just passed through the state, with zero temperatures (Celsius) in several villages. The cold air is especially harmful in the mountain pueblos because there is little medical care and the residents are especially susceptible to respiratory ailments.

Fifty-six cold fronts are expected to pass across the Southern Sierra Madres between November 2010 and March 2011. Experts are predicting the coldest winter in five years. In Acapulco, night time temperatures have dipped as low as 18° (64°F), but usually remain around 20-22° (68-72°F). Daytime temperatures in winter months typically peak at 30-32° (86-90°F).
