Conagua explains that this weather is due to a heatwave affecting the country’s capital, which is expected to end on April 17th.

The temperature this Monday, April 15th, set a new monthly and yearly record.

The National Water Commission (Conagua) reported that this Monday, a historic high temperature record was set in Mexico City, the capital of the country, reaching 34.2 degrees Celsius, surpassing the 33.9 degrees recorded on May 9th, 1998.

Through their account on X, the head of Conagua, Germán Martínez, communicated that the previous highest record for the month of April was 33.7 degrees, recorded on April 10th, 2009. Additionally, he mentioned that the highest temperature recorded on April 15th was 31.6 degrees in 1998.

The temperature this day set a new record both monthly and annually, he noted. In light of this, he urged the population to take precautions.

Sunday also broke a record as the hottest April 14th since records have been kept, and Monday’s temperatures reflect the intense weather situation Mexico City is experiencing, exposing millions of workers and students during the hottest commuting hours.

Conagua explains that this weather is due to a heatwave affecting the country’s capital, which is expected to end on April 17th, while it continues to generate high temperatures.

Globally, monthly temperature records have been reported for several months, including March. This is largely due to phenomena such as El Niño, which has caused increases in ocean and land temperatures.

According to the weather forecast, for Tuesday, April 16th, maximum temperatures of 32 to 34 °C are expected in the capital, along with the possibility of isolated showers.

The Secretariat of Comprehensive Management of Mexico City has activated the orange alert due to heat, due to the forecast of high temperatures for Tuesday afternoon in nine of the 16 boroughs that make up the capital.
