The graphic shows the forecast for tomorrow, where the cold front (black line with black triangles) remains in its place, generating wind acceleration in Guatemala.

The ICC is currently monitoring the artic oscillation, which allows cold air mass to separate, which are the ones that generate those cold fronts. All of the information that is analyzed in ICC is verified by official sources like the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAA (United States) and national official sources such as INSIVUMEH.
