Arctic air masses during the last severe outbreaks found a way far southward – above northern and central Mexico, with a result of a peaking of the winter in the country.
The coldest temperature of the winter was measured in La Rosilla, 2600 MASL, only -17,0°C.
El Vergel (1224 MASL) / Cumbres de Majalca (2600 MASL) reported -12,9ºC / -10,6ºC.
In Monterrey, 515 MASL, temperatures on 23. January 2022 were moving only between +1,8°C and +8,4°C.
