Weather Underground Forecast for Thursday, March 20, 2014
An area of low pressure is expected to develop over the Gulf of Campeche on Thursday, which will bring rain and thunderstorms to eastern Mexico and the Yucatan Peninsula. High pressure along the eastern Pacific will keep conditions mostly clear over western Mexico. Mexico City will be partly cloudy with a high of 81(F)/ 27(C), while Cancun can expect mostly cloudy skies with a high of 83(F)/ 28(C). Meanwhile, monsoonal moisture will trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms across several Central American countries, including parts of Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. Strong thunderstorms will likely focus over eastern Panama. For more information regarding the tropics, please visit http://www.wunderground.com/hurricane/.
In South America, strong to severe thunderstorms will continue to develop over the border between Peru and western Brazil. The strongest thunderstorms will focus over Acre. A warm muggy air mass will also allow for stormy conditions to occur across Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia and central Brazil. To the south, an area of low pressure will linger along the coast of southeastern Brazil and Uruguay. This system will usher heavy rain and thunderstorms across Paraguay and southeastern Brazil. Further to the south, a separate low pressure system will continue to pound southern Chile and southern Argentina, as heavy precipitation and gusty winds will push across the southern Andes.
