Weekend forecasts for the state of Chihuahua are for temperatures even higher than those that brought a weather alert last week, when authorities warned of temperatures approaching 50 C. Temperatures are forecast to reach 52 C this weekend in a heat wave that hs helped fuel three large forest fires.
Last week’s weather warning applied to 11 municipalities but has now been extended to include a total of 30, where temperatures have consistently risen above 40 C.
The municipality of Moris in the Sierra Tarahumara has already reported temperatures above 50, a situation not reported there for years, said the state Civil Protection chief.
As a result, Virgilio Cepeda Cisneros has requested the federal government declare a natural disaster emergency.
