Third heat wave to continue in Mexico this week, so in some cities we will have temperatures above 45 degrees Celsius. The National Meteorological Service confirmed that the heat wave that has gripped the country since the beginning of the month will continue. For today it is predicted hot and very hot environment in 32 states of the countrywith extreme temperatures in Campeche, Coahuila, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosí, Tabasco, Tamaulipas, Veracruz and Yucatan.

As mentioned a few days ago, the anticyclonic circulation in the mid-atmosphere favors a hot afternoon environment. Expected that High temperatures to continue this week, although they could decrease at the beginning of the next one. conagua mentioned which tracks two low pressure zones in the Atlantic Ocean, one of them with a 100 percent probability of cyclonic development in 48 hours.

Scientists from the UNAM Institute of Atmospheric Science and Climate Change noted that the heat won’t quite end. Graciela Binimelis de Raga, a researcher at the Micro-Mesoscale Interaction Group, noted that low soil moisture increases the intensity of heatwaves. “We have a large part of the country suffering from severe and severe drought in some regions,” he said.

For his part, Victor Manuel Torres Puente, a specialist in tropical meteorology, pointed out that a little cloudiness is associated with a lot of heat and radiation. The expert predicted that the third heat wave will end in June with the formation of two tropical cyclones in the Caribbean Sea. Subsequently, the fourth wave will start in July and will be as intense as the one we experienced during these days.

Heat Waves Affect Your Mental Health

heat waves They affect not only our physical health, but also our behavior. As reported TalkHigh temperatures may worsen depressive symptoms or anxiety disorders in people with these conditions. Studying Impact of extreme weather events on mental healthpublished in the U.S. National Library of Medicine found that events such as floods and heat waves pose a significant threat to mental health population.

The second study showed that there is a link between fever and suicide rates. “Above 18°C, a 1°C increase in mean temperature was associated with 3.8% and 5.0% increases in suicides and violent suicides.accordingly,” he says. The researchers found that suicide rates increased by 46.9% during the 1995 heat wave in the UK.

On the other hand, scientists at Boston University have documented the effects of heat on people’s cognitive abilities. Those who live in rooms without air conditioning experience a significant decrease in cognitive tests and an increase in reaction time. High temperatures in heat waves affect a person’s ability to think and cause increased aggression.

High temperatures also cause stress

Regarding the last one in Heat in Mexico City it was found that heat waves increase stress levels. Ernesto Jauregui, a researcher at the UNAM Institute of Geography and author of the study, found that the May 1998 heat wave caused great stress in the population. Residents of Mexico City experienced temperatures of up to 33.7 degrees Celsius for 13 days that year.

Subsequently, in May 2003, a new wave of heat put the capital at risk, causing severe stress. Perhaps most important in both cases is that these events took place in the spring after the El Niño events. Binimelis de Raga indicated that this year there is a Niño event that is predicted to be intense, so heat waves in 2024 will be worse than this year.
