Weather in Mexico


Expats living in Mexico may find themselves on a tropical coastline, in a desolate desert, among frosty mountain peaks or in lush valleys. Needless to say, the weather in Mexico is incredibly varied and as affected by altitude as it is by longitude.

weather in mexicoMany may be surprised to learn that the majority of the country is made up of elevated plateau and high-rising mountains. Imagery of the hot, sunny beaches and fecund jungles is fitting, but only for portions of the Pacific coast and the Yucatan Peninsula.

Regardless of location, the general climate in Mexico is warm-temperate, and most of the nation experiences year-round sunny weather. In places with higher altitude - Mexico City included - expats may experience a shortness of breath until they adjust to the pressure change. These locales can experience extremely hot temperatures during the day, and sudden shifts to cold in the evenings.

The Mexican coastlines are known for their high temperatures, averaging between 32°C to 35°C throughout the year, and their moderate to high level of rainfall.

Occassional tropical storms between the months of August to September may also wreak havoc and bring heavy rains.

Otherwise, precipitation in Mexico is most common between June and November. The remaining months of the year are relatively dry. This feature serves to separate seasons in Mexico rather than temperature difference.

Expats concerned about the weather in Mexico should research the specific region they're relocating to in order to build a better knowledge base about what to expect.
