The first snowfall of the season has arrived in Chihuahua, Mexico, on October 27, 2020, accompanied by rains and below-freezing temperatures as low as -8 °C (17.6 °F). According to meteorologists, the phenomenon was unusual for the month of October.
While the Yucatan Peninsula was hit by Hurricane Zeta on Tuesday, Chihuahua was engulfed by the first snowfall of the season, along with rainfall and very low temperatures. Residents in the state posted photos and videos of heavy snow blanketing the roads.
According to Meteorologia Mexico, some areas shivered through temperatures of -2 °C (28.4 °F) and -8 °C (F).
Several activities were canceled or limited due to the heavy snow, rainfall, and cold temperatures, including the training session of a soccer team as a thick layer of snow covered a field in Juarez.
