Anyone know what the humidex Temps are thru the summer Months? Right now the Weather network says 28c 84 humidity, at 10:50 pm, humidex calculator values that at 40c!

I'd be surprised if you didn't already know we use centígrados. Perhaps you'll find one of the numerous links on my WEATHER page useful.

The tropical rainy season is HOT and HUMID as you can see by reviewing the historical weather data and daily averages for local weather from May 15 to November 30. Snowbirds and other northern dwellers frequently find the humidity uncomfortable if not intolerable, and they usually seek salvation in air conditioning and copious amounts of alcohol (though alcohol only makes you feel hotter). This is a phenomenon I've observed in every tropical and sub-tropical place I've ever lived or visited.

It would be helpful if you could include Fahrenheit temps when you post weather for us old farts too lazy to do the math.

Ain't gonna happen. ¡Ubícate! You grew up on the metric system. What're you bitchin' about? It's inherently easier to understand metric than the imperial system.

Besides, we basically only have 3 temperatures: HOT and WARM for outside, and COOL for air-conditioning and a few winter mornings. It's pretty much the same temperature all year round with very slight variations.

Here's a morning photo from the dead of winter.

It was a simple question. Do you really need to constantly be such a jerk? If adding F to C is so much work, why bother posting the weather at all?

A jerk? Everyone else here seems to handle learning the metric system just fine. Go suck a snowflake, buttercup! :devil:

Here's a photo from the dead of summer. Compare it to the one from the dead of winter. Can you spot the differences? ;-)

If you are looking for easy answers there aren't any.

I find summer COOLER here than autumn or winter. Spring brings the lowest morning temperatures.

The hottest thermal temp time is May-June-July.

When afternoon thunderstorms from the mountains arrive temps can plummet for awhile. The longer the duration of the storm the longer the duration afterward of the cool period.

HURRICANES and TROPICAL STORMS to the south that veer northwest, always push a huge bubble of very hot air ahead of them. This "la cannicula" is often spoken about among Mexicanos. You can BE SURE a storm is somewhere to the south.

Sleeping outside inside a mosquito tent with fan is a big help. A yucatecan hammock really helps. I use cheesecloth as a sheet over me. Why a fan inside the pabellón? it is because mosquito netting actually blocks air circulation. Such an arrangement makes summer nights a pleasure. I put an ultraviolet lamp on the far end of the patio to attract insects then I can have a reading light over my head. It is a diversión to look at the wall near the UV light and count the alacranes and geckos attracted by the lamp and insects.

The approximate math is simple, double centigrade and add 30. It's actually 9/5 C + 32.

It's a lot easier to just start thinking in C and stop thinking in F. Listing both never helps anyone. Here in Canada, they introduced the metric system in the early 70's and we never see any temperatures listed in F. But for some reason, grocers were permitted to continue showing Imperial weights for meat, as long as they also showed the metric equivalent. As a result, all advertising and store displays continue to show meat weights most prominently in lbs - and no one in Canada is comfortable with metric meat weights. Big mistake by government, who should have legislated a full conversion to metric - just like in the rest of the civilized world. :stirpot:

Not sure about humidex. I use for reference Accuweather that has a "real feel" number. Weather.com also has a humidity index in % - that one is useful to decide time to exercise in the morning.

Here are the links:

If you use the Weather Underground history function https://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/MMZH/2016/6/1/DailyHistory.html

and the Humidex Calculator http://www.csgnetwork.com/canhumidexcalc.html

you will find it is hot as hell in June (and July and August and Sept)B-)
. Remembering those "feels like" 50C (120F) when we are one with our AC.

Exactly, that is the site I use, right now the humidex factor or feels like is 39c OR 102f....damn hot for 11:30 a.m.

According to that site, feels like 29c at 27c temp, a humidex calculator shows 27c temp with 71% humidity shows 35c.

The first time we went to IZ in 1997, I kept looking around for a thermometer. Finally found one when we visited a Canadian living in Troncones. Realized that temperature was only important to those from places where climate varies such as in Canada.

When I get off the plane at Zihua in January I start to sweat. I stop when we leave. How hot? Doesn't matter!

If we are spending a relaxed day on the beach and in the water info about the humidex not important to me. But if we are planning a activity due to my swelling issues knowing in advance how hot and humid it will be is a BIG help.
