Mexico is heating super fast

We had an unusually rainy spring in Monterrey, But it looks like we're gonna have an extremely hot summer. These aren't our normal temperatures. Today was a very hot day in most of mexico, not just my city. Even the Yucatan Peninsula got these temperatures.

Yep.. been seeing this too ( over that part of Mexico.. )  Part of the reason for the heat -on your side of Mex. is the High Pressure area that usually starts moving Northwest towards AZ / N.M. is currently stuck south of where it should be atm.

E 'rn Mexico usually gets hot in mid/ late spring, but you start to see some rains -by now ..as that high pressure area migrates west toward us..  We're oddly cool ( By Arizona standards )  right now, instead of beginning the start of "roasting season"..( Daily Temps above 40C )

Here are two maps that show why it is hotter there -than maybe it should be- atm..

High pressure area < Red area >  ( 591 and 594 / 594+dam heights on the map = HOT beneath that " Heat Dome " ) is centered over Mexico, while lower pressure is laid out over the U.S. ( Blue areas = cooler temps. ) Those low pressure areas keep the High locked over Mexico.. -For now at least.. 

It could finally start moving west / northwest toward the end of the month.. ( Tonight's Tropical Tidbits 00Z GFS Model Run ) which means less intense heat for Eastern Mexico,  hotter weather here / in Western Mexico..

*** That said, don't completely trust the weather models, any of them.. Pattern has been weird all spring, and may continue ***   For now, stay hydrated ..keep the plants hydrated..

I should add.. In Southern Texas ...and Eastern / Southern Mexico i believe, such heat waves / heat dome episodes there  are sometimes referred to as " La Canicula " / " Canicula " which apparently translates to " Dog Days " ( ..of Summer ),  or " Mid Summer Heat "..

Toasty!

My favorite place in Mexico to monitor is Alamos, it is a very unusual climate for a tropical savanna/hot steppe borderline (look at the diurnal range and record highs/lows) and gets very hot for its coastal location. They are actually getting hotter than you are in Monterrey, every day this week except June 16-18 will be 41-42C.🥵

Depends on which Wx station you're referring to..

If referencing the station in Obregon -at their Airport,  that area of the coastal plain gets quite hot..   Very similar temperatures to what we'd be seeing right now here in/ around Phoenix.

The Wx station(s) in Alamos proper,  ...Centro, and another located at a Nature reserve nearby,  are typically cooler  than areas on the coastal plain.  .still hot, ..but cooler  than the coastal plain..  Since Alamos sits in the lower Foothills/ is much less built up / populated. 

** of note, both stations in Alamos aren't always online, so information from them can have gaps at times ***

Regardless, this kind of heat in both areas is pretty typical for the run up to the Monsoon.. Once that sets in, temps dial back quite a bit.  Still hot ..and humid ( note the dew point readings beyond the 15th ) .. Coastal plain areas esp.  since they see less rainfall / cloud cover than Alamos as Monsoon season starts. 

Looking at both forecasts, Pre- monsoon  " heat season " may be extended as the arrival of Monsoonal moisture may be delayed this year..
