Early Sunday: First Rain of the Season

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 18 April, 2011

(Acapulco, NA 18 April) The first rain to fall in Acapulco in several months came in the middle of the night over the weekend. Rain fell hard for several minutes, accompanied by a spectacular lightening show, heavy thunder and high winds. Then suddenly, it was all over. Lightning struck several transformers, as the lights went out in most of the outlying industrial suburbs of Acapulco like El Cayaco, Llano Largo and El Coloso.

According to the Department of Public Safety, the higher temperatures during the day, which now reach 30 to 32°C (89-91°F) will cause afternoon rainclouds to form. From now on, the chances of an evening rain shower in Acapulco are increasing. By May 1 we should be fully in the mode of “rainy season,” when one can expect tropical rainstorms every so often and a rain shower late at night almost every night.
