Due that humidity is entering the country from the Atlantic Ocean, some rains and light drizzles with electric activity could occur, mostly in the middle of the week. Also, the interaction of air masses accelerates wind, generating high speed wind gusts in Southern Guatemala that could reach up to 60km/h.

It is important to take cautionary actions against these gusts according to your place of residence, making sure that roofs and other articles that can fall are properly secured/attached. If you are to drive, it is possible that you feel the force of wind over your vehicle, thus we recommend staying alert and reducing speed.
